Chris Hoadley and Dixie Ching partner with Indiana University on Hive Research Lab project

Chris Hoadley and Dixie Ching have received a grant to study the Mozilla Hive NYC Learning Network, in collaboration with Dr. Kylie Peppler and Rafi Santo at Indiana University. The Hive Research Lab will serve as the applied research partner to the network of 56 afterschool providers known collectively as Hive NYC, with the goal of helping the network members achieve a more coherent experience for youth participants and a stronger community of practice for the educational organizations associated with the network.

We couldn’t be more excited to work with our esteemed colleagues at IU! Please stay tuned for more updates, or follow our activities on the HRL blog and via Twitter (@HiveResearchLab).
