Fall into DLAC 2022! 🍁

Note this call for proposals.

We want to hear from you!

Tomorrow marks the Fall Equinox, where we transition away from Summer days and marks the first day of Autumn. Seasonal changes are a great time to take stock of where you are, where you want to go and how you can get there.

Over the last couple of months we have heard from our DLC members, that the start of the school year was still a bit chaotic, there was progress in some areas, but the same old issues and obstacles in others. That’s where DLAC comes in.

Right now we have the Call for Proposals open until October 10th, 2021. We want you to think about some of the challenges you are still experiencing or successes you have celebrated and brainstorm a way you can share those out to others all over the country and world at #DLAC22!

We are also doing rolling acceptances this year with the DLAC proposals! So get your ideas in an early, and you might just be one of our first proposals to make it on our 2022 Program!

Haven’t registered yet? No problem! All Access and Online registrations are now available.

Reach out to us at DLAC@evergreenedgroup.com!

DLAC 2022 Call for Proposals NOW OPEN 🙌

Note the call for this up-coming conference.

View this email in your browser

Submit your proposal today!

ATTN presenters—and those of you who might not think of yourselves as speakers!

The DLAC 2022 Call for Proposals is now open. The DLAC Team is ready to start reviewing all your ideas for DLAC sessions, whether you want to present in person in Atlanta or virtually. DLAC is made up of short, fast, and interactive sessions, which means you don’t need to be able to talk for an entire hour about a certain topic. In fact, we encourage those of you who have not had the chance to present at DLAC to really look at the different types of sessions we offer.

  • Maybe you have a question or obstacle you can turn into a table talk?
  • Maybe you have a very quick story to share in 20 minutes during a contributed talk?
  • If you are feeling brave, tackle a Pecha Kucha that lasts 6 minutes and 40 seconds!

The fact of the matter is, you don’t need to be an expert to ask hard questions, share good stories, or start a valuable discussion…If you have questions about your session ideas shoot us an email! We would love to help – DLAC@evergreenedgroup.com

The Digital Learning Annual Conference is hosted by the Digital Learning Collaborative. The DLC recently updated Membership options and are especially focused on meeting the needs of districts starting an online or hybrid school for the first time. On top of districts being able to join the DLC for $1,000/year membership which includes a $500.00 credit towards DLAC registration—onsite or online, we are also offering FREE recurring webinar on Mondays from September 13, 2021 – November 1, 2021 at 1:00PT/4:00ET that will cover topics including recruiting and supporting teachers, student support, digital content, tech platforms.

Need more benefits? We’ve got you covered:

  • 10 member-only webinars each year (August, September, October, November, January, February, March, April, May) on topics related to planning, teacher hiring and development, acquiring content, student support, and more.
  • Moderated community area for facilitated discussions on these and other topics.
  • Extensive digital resources from the DLC and other sources, posted and discussed.
  • Connection to State Affiliate Group (if available)
  • Occasional “office hours” with experts on given topics.

If you have questions about the DLC membership options, feel free to email us at DLC@evergreenedgroup.com.

An update from another conference.

Time to put your thinking cap on…

We are less than a week out from our Call for Proposals going live! What does this mean for you?

1.) Start brainstorming proposal ideas!
2.) Mark your calendar: CFP opens September 13th, 2021 and closes October 10th, 2021.

What makes a good DLAC presentation you ask? We’re looking for sessions that explore instructional strategies using online, blended, and digital learning to meet educational goals at a district, school, or student level. We are especially interested in systemic approaches to using online tools, resources, or instruction in traditional schools, and also welcome sessions from online schools, hybrid schools, state virtual schools, and the full range of organizations involved in K-12 digital learning. Some specific ideas include:

  • What does “success” look like—beyond test scores in particular?
  • How can digital learning strategies and programs be sustainable and scalable?
  • What have you failed at, learned from, improved upon?
  • What research or evidence-based concepts are you putting into practice (or researching)?
  • What policies are helping or hindering digital learning efforts?

Remember, everyone attending DLAC is looking to learn from each other. We want to hear your stories, even if it’s what didn’t work. As Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Another email will be sent when the CFP portal is officially open. If you have questions about your session ideas shoot us an email! We would love to help – DLAC@evergreenedgroup.com

Need to register for #DLAC22 still? Both All Access and Online registration is now available.
