Silver Lining for Learning is an ongoing conversation on the future of learning with educators and education leaders from across the globe. Hosted by Chris Dede, Curt Bonk, Shuangye Chen, Punya Mishra & Yong Zhao, these conversations began under the “dark cloud” of the COVID19 crisis and continue today. We see these conversations as space to discuss the creation of equitable, humanistic and sustainable learning ecosystems that meet the needs of all learners. These conversations are hosted live on YouTube every Saturday (typically 5:30 PM Eastern US time) and are archived on

Join Punya Mishra, Yong Zhao and Curt Bonk as they discuss the overall project, identify and describe a few of their favorite episodes and describe why these are exciting in their implications for learning across the world. They will also describe ways the growing SLL archive can be a resource capturing innovations in transforming education at scale.
