Making Curriculum Pop

Soooo in tough times it is probably even harder to go to things like this but what the heck huh, came in my inbox, thought I'd share sans hyperlinks...

Mark your calendar! The next Education Week Leadership Forum, Smart Ed-Tech Strategies for Tough Times, is coming in September. We want to be sure you have saved the date of your choice – either September 17 in Chicago or September 25 in Jersey City.

Smart Ed-Tech Strategies for Tough Times is the perfect opportunity for you and your colleagues to learn from and collaborate with other top district and ed-tech leaders in an interactive one-day forum. Sessions will be packed with practical solutions, best practices, and money-saving strategies. You will go back to your district with sure-fire tactics to improve student learning, turbocharge teacher professional development, and much more. Take a look at the full agenda to see what valuable takeaways you will bring back.

You will be hearing from these notable industry experts and ed-tech leaders who are both on the forefront of innovation and in the trenches of implementation:

Michael B. Horn, co-author of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns
Susan Patrick, president and CEO, International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL)
