Four of Pittsburgh’s leading media organizations — WQED Multimedia, PopCity, 90.5 WESA and Pittsburgh Magazine — have joined forces on a 12-month initiative dubbed “Spotlight on Learning Innovation.” Made possible through a grant from the Grable Foundation, the project will focus on Pittsburgh’s leadership in the international movement to “remake learning” and create educational opportunities designed for our times.
Learning Innovation focuses on the Pittsburgh region’s need to prepare its young people for college and the work force by building on the basics and connecting students with hands-on learning experiences that develop relevant skills.
