China Connections

The NLC works to promote partnerships with educators in China. They hold bi-annual summits on China-US relations for educators, policy makers, and business leaders to learn why China-US collaborations are important for creating a globally educated citizenry and workforce. Additionally, NLC has established a relationship with the Beijing Royal School for teachers’ professional development in new literacies and for K-12 Chinese students. Two New Literacies Teacher Leader Institutes have been conducted by the NLC team in Beijing.
