Silver Lining for Learning (SLL) is an ongoing conversation on the future of learning with educators, education leaders, innovators, and learners from across the globe. Hosted by Chris Dede, Curt Bonk, Punya Mishra & Yong Zhao, these conversations began under the “dark cloud” of the COVID19 crisis and continue today. We see these conversations as an opportunity to discuss the creation of equitable, humanistic and sustainable learning ecosystems that meet the needs of all learners. These  conversations are hosted live on YouTube every Saturday (typically 5:30 PM Eastern US time). The videos are archived on this website and the conversations are also available in podcast form on all major podcast apps.

More about the mission and history of SLL can be found in this article: Silver Lining for Learning as a bottom up driver of innovation.
