The Atlantic Center for Innovation in Education is a think tank dedicated to fostering rich dialogue, networking and innovative practice in public, charter, parochial, independent and international schools across the Atlantic coast of North America. Based in New York, the Center offers a variety of workshops, institutes and idea summits that fuse cutting edge research with innovative educational trends and paradigms.

Participants in one of the Center’s institutes have the chance to interact with engaging and exciting educational ideas — such as the infusion of 21st century coaching and mentoring, game-based learning theory, blended learning, teacher-led action research, sustainability in schools, language learning, and visible thinking — as well as join a cohort of colleagues from other schools.

The Center facilitates ongoing dialogue and collaboration after the conclusion of all its activities, through a hosted digital platform that keeps cohorts connected and networking to continue the transformation of their practice.
