We will be discussing leadership, equity, Common Core implementation, and trends in education.

We will have morning and afternoon keynote addresses that will be presented in the TED Talk format: three to four expert speakers will each take 15-20 minutes to give you a high level overview of their message. These will be followed by a short break and then each keynote speaker or their staff will run a breakout session where a more in-depth discussion of their topic will be presented in an open, participatory, and interactive style. There will also be introductory and advanced product training sessions both days.

You may choose which breakout session you attend based on your interest in the topic. You do not have to select breakout sessions in advance, but space in each room is limited, so it will be first come, first seated.
