Introducing the VIVA Idea Exchange


The VIVA Idea Exchange is a groundbreaking approach to mine insights from teachers across the country, inspire their professional leadership and contribute to education leaders’ work making higher impact education policy.

Phase One-Gather

We invite a stakeholder group (all Colorado k12 educators, all parents or guardians in Chicago, all NEA members in multiple states) to share their ideas via our web-based platform

Phase Two-Focus

A small group of thought leaders is invited to form a Writing Collaborative, which turns the wisdom of the many into actionable recommendations

Phase Three-Apply

The Writing Collaborative delivers a summary of the larger group’s work and their actionable recommendation to education leaders
