Hive Kharagpur, Experience at its BEST!!!

The definition of awesomeness was realized by me again, hell yea its all over again at Hive Kharagpur!!! Merely it was a place for fun, merely it was an event. Yes the thing it was, was the togetherness and determination of every mozillians in Kolkata & Kharagpur to make something good, to learn teach and share, to make Hive Successful. “Hive KGP” the best-est thing of 2014 according to me.

Overview of Hive:

Hives are comprised of organizations (libraries, museums, schools and non-profit startups) and individuals (educators, designers, community catalysts and makers). Together, they create opportunities for youth to learn within and beyond the confines of traditional classroom experiences, design innovative practices and tools that build the field for greater impact, and contribute to their own professional development within an active community of practice.

The Hive model is supported by three levels of engagement: Events: Organizations with shared learning goals unite to provide a fun, engaging event for youth as a first step towards exploring longer-term collaboration. Hive Learning Communities: Community organizers with an interest in Hive’s core principles come together to begin putting connected learning tools and practices into practice through regular meet-ups and events. Hive Learning Networks: Officially designated Learning Networks with an operational budget and staff commit to promoting innovative, open-source learning models in partnership with a communities’ civic and cultural organizations, businesses, entrepreneurs, educators and learners.
