"The LRNG Innovators Challenge supports educators to work together to develop new practices, arrangements, curricula, and/or projects that have, at their core, principles of Connected Learning—interest-driven, production-centered, peer-supported work by young people. Educators include teachers and also youth workers, mentors, librarians, museum educators, teaching artists, and others—those who work with youth in learning-centered endeavors and opportunities.

The 2015 challenge is to reach beyond the schoolhouse door to develop partnerships and programs that connect in-school and out-of-school learning and create opportunities for young people to follow their interests and do ambitious work. LRNG Innovators will invest in teams of educators committed to exploring how learning experiences can move fluidly and coherently across the spheres of formal and informal learning."
