Weekly Update

We’re excited to announce that Dr Marcus Howard has joined our team as the first EdHub Expert-in-Residence. Dr Howard’s role as the EIR is to oversee the Education Innovation Fellowship which supports individuals and teams building early-stage education programs and startups. Dr Howard’s experience as an educator, edtech entrepreneur, and leading strategic innovations for Teach For America makes him an incredible fit for overseeing the next phase of EdHub’s Education Innovation Fellowship.

“We must prepare all young people by affording them the opportunity to develop skills for the 21st century. To help realize this vision, we must be intentional in grounding the voices of those furthest from opportunity in the design and implementation of the new ideas coming out of EdHub.”

— Dr Marcus Howard
