On September 13, 2012, Dell hosted a social think tank and town hall meeting focused on innovation in education on the campus of MIT. The gathering featured a forum of 20+ leaders and thinkers including students, school administrators, and representatives from educational organizations and businesses. The 3-hour+ conversation, which you can watch in the 2-part Livestream below, is organized into three main topics: 1) data-driven innovation and student-driven transparency, 2) the future of innovation in a non-textbook world, and 3) closing the learning gap.

Bill Ferriter, the only K-12 classroom teacher participating in the think tank, wrote a reflection on the conversations at his blog, The Tempered Radical.
