This hands-on, workshop-based learning experience was created by educators for educators. This is not a traditional sit-and-get conference. Our goal is to give you tools, guidance, and the time to dream, discover, and design your way to a new model of learning. It is project-based. It is inquiry-based and passion-based. It is authentic, grounded in your real-world.

CONFERENCE attendee testimonials
Appreciate rubrics, techniques and the invitation for future collaboration in beginning this work.
The positive culture among staff -- everyone did a really good job of being proud of their work without proselytizing; they did not suggest everyone MUST do this, nor even that it is the BEST way to teach; they just shared their work generously and enthusiastically.
These educators know what they are doing. They're not out to convert you, but they are energetic, practical and realistic. It's refreshing to be told straight up where the pitfalls lie and that you don't have to follow a particular theorist or think tank to the letter. This is usable knowledge, hands-on training, and proven examples. I would want to work at this school and send my kids here. -- Andrew Taylor, Vistamar
Games, fun, and positivity ... this came in the following day's staff meeting with "student celebrations". I am so glad I attended that! Very different from other schools that focus on failure, rescue, discipline etc. I saw no hand-wringing, only enthusiasm and mutual support.
