What is Virtual Summit?

You may have heard a lot about deeper learning and innovation. Opportunities and resources abound, but if you’re like most teachers, you don’t have extra time to wade through a mountain of Web sites and links from Twitter and Facebook.

Lucky you! We’ve created a virtual summit packed with everything you need to know about deeper learning–all enjoyed for FREE from the comfort of your own home.

During the virtual summit, you’ll hear from world-renowned experts and award-winning classroom teachers on a range of topics including:

  • the big picture of deeper learning–what it is and how it impacts student learning
  • the importance of leadership
  • design thinking
  • increasing student creativity
  • how to chart your own course for what deeper learning looks like in your classroom.

Come and climb with us!
