We're excited to be launching our blog along side our patented interactive learning platform. Huddle Up Learning consists of two foundational beliefs. 1) Interactive, social learning focused on solutions lets us make meaning together. 2) We learn from and with feedback. Those two principles are also embodied here in our Huddle Up community. So, we're glad you're here - where we learn from and with one another, and feel free to give us feedback on how you're using the Huddle Up platform to creatively solve problems. Stay tuned. We're just getting started. We look forward to what we can build, together. Derek Luebbe CEO, Jetlag Learning, creators of Huddle Up Learning
