IICE is incredibly proud to off the Connectedness Grant. Our first grant, IICE received funding so as to offer a way for an institution to fundamentally shift their infrastructure as it pertains to connection.
The Institute for Inter-Connected Education is proud to announce an opportunity for colleges and universities, showcasing the power of giving. IICE is happy to announce our first-ever grant opportunity for schools seeking to empower their students, faculty, and staff via better connectedness infrastructure.
A crucial "systems thinking" component of a learning ecosystem is this: Integration trumps functionality. In other words, if 85% of your desired functionality can be achieved with a fully integrated tool, or 97% of your desired functionality can be achieved with no connection to other parts of the ecosystem, use the former and avoid the latter. (Of note, this is why the RFI / RFP process can be so detrimental to an organization's longitudinal well-being from a systems perspective.)
