Come Visit Us at iNACOL

Since the annual iNACOL conference begins today, I figured I should post these vendor e-mails that I have been receiving (even though I’m not attending, and haven’t for several years now).  I’ll post them on the hour until they run out – not sure how many I’ll receive to be honest (as this one showed up this past Monday or Tuesday, but there were no more as of the end of the day on Friday when I last updated this message)…

Some readers see this part of your email after the subject line in the inbox. Write something brief and catchy, compelling them to open the email.

Dear Friends,
We are very excited for this year’s iNACOL Symposium in Orlando, FL on November 8-11, 2015! For those of you making the trip to the conference, 2Rev will be hosting a few conference sessions:
Sunday, November 8, 1:00 – 4:00pm: Designing the Future of Learning
(pre-conference session)
Adam Rubin and Todd Kern, Founders, 2Revolutions
Amy Allen, Principal, Parker Varney Elementary School
Kelly Callahan, Teacher, Parker Varney Elementary School
Gretchen Morgan, Executive Director of Choice and Innovation, Colorado Department of Education
This 3-hour workshop, designed to meet the needs of educators and leaders across the education sector, will provide a hands-on introduction to the forces shaping the transition toward the Future of Learning in K-12 education.
This workshop will demonstrate why design matters and help participants better understand current approaches for moving to next generation learning models. Attendees will examine innovation cycles and how to experiment on existing models, how to prototype new models, and how to iterate toward transformation of schools and systems. The key trends driving the future of learning toward personalization, emerging technologies, a shift in policy environments, advances in the science of cognition, increased global economic pressures, the expanding ecosystem of learning and putting students at the center are powered by blended models in this new world. Attendees will think about how to scale the most promising innovations from early stage planning to iterate using innovation design methodologies.
Space is limited to ensure small group interactions, so we encourage you to register early for the pre-conference workshops.
Tuesday, November 10, 11:15am – 12:15pm: The State as Catalyst for Innovation: Inside the Test Kitchen
Adam Rubin, Founder, 2Revolutions
Gretchen Morgan, Executive Director of Choice and Innovation, Colorado Department of Education
Paul Leather, Deputy Commissioner, New Hampshire Department of Education
Come inside to learn about the work from two very different places, New Hampshire and Colorado, as they move toward next generation learning at scale. How did they map themselves against the enabling or inhibiting conditions as a starting point? What have they learned through their work? How are they adapting and approaching scale? Where are you as a state and district and how do you move toward realizing your future of learning?
Wednesday, November 11, 10:00am – 12:15pm: Uberizing Time, Talent, and Technology for AP Teaching and Learning
Bryan Setser, Partner, 2Revolutions
Julie Goff, Director, Davidson Next
Participants will be learners or “riders” in the domains of AP Physics, AP Calculus, and AP Macroeconomics. “Ride share teams” will organize themselves around common challenges in AP content. Teams will collaborate with fellow riders, as well as external professors and AP teachers. The workshop will focus on sample routes that leverage AP MOOCs and Uber-style tactics and connection widgets that will enable learners to ride along with experts, each other, and deeper supports on the platform.
Wednesday, November 11, 11:15am – 12:15pm: Building and Sustaining a Culture of Innovation
Bryan Setser, Partner, 2Revolutions

The world is changing, which places new demands on how we prepare students and adults to succeed in the complex future that awaits them. This session will focus on how leaders across the education sector can develop and sustain a culture of innovation to accelerate positive outcomes. Participants will learn about our design tool that can be used by organizational leaders to plot their current state, assess where to go next, and assist in moving the organization to a future state.

We hope to see you in Orlando!
