2015 iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium

Dear Michael,

iNACOL is pleased to announce the Wednesday, November 11, 2015 closing keynote presentation for the iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium will be a Convergence Panel titled Education Reimagined: A Transformational Vision with Learners at the CenterThe panel will feature Gisele Huff, Executive Director of the Hume Foundation, and Becky Pringle, Vice President of the National Education Association. Kelly Young, Director of Convergence, will moderate an inspirational discussion with Huff and Pringle around building a shared vision of student-centered learning.

What does extraordinary learning look like when we put aside our current assumptions of what, where, when, and how learning should occur? And what systems would be necessary to support this new type of learning? These are the questions that an unusually diverse group of leaders came together to explore. After an 18-month dialogue, these stakeholders emerged united behind a shared transformational vision for learner-centered education in the U.S. and committed to making it a reality.

Join these Education Reimagined vision creators, who came into the process at opposite ends of the current debates and left the process in partnership, for a discussion moderated by the convener of the project. Explore a learner-centric paradigm for education that sees all children as wondrous, curious, capable human beings and designs a system around the learner unconstrained by the current industrial-model of education. Hear about their experiences during the 18-month dialogue, how they arrived at their new vision, and how many education pioneers are already working to make the vision a reality. Discover how this group’s vision and the path they took to get there can inspire, inform and propel your work to design learning experiences and systems that have each and every child thrive and realize their full potential.

Please join us at the iNACOL Symposium for this esteemed panel discussion, more than 200 thought-provoking sessions, and unparalleled networking opportunities on November 8-11, 2015 in Orlando, Florida. This year’s iNACOL Symposium theme is Connecting Powerful Innovators.
