National Gathering - A Retreat-Style Event for Digitally Transitioning School and District Leaders

2019 Theme: Becoming Expo Learning

The new designed-for-digital education enterprise would reverse engineer the analog (people and place) aspects into a digital-first entity. It would flip to digital. It would flip to workflow instead of industrial-age delivery models. Such a redesign would fit current expectations because of what people experience in other sectors, where there is an App for everything. It would emphasize personalizing learning paths for real. It would leverage the teachers for their humanity and not overburden them with all aspects of lesson planning, analytics, data entry and a mile-high tech and Apps stack.


  • It’s easy to essentially stay the same yet tack on technology. It’s harder to transform a whole institution. Why would anyone take the more difficult “road less traveled?” 


  • School and district leaders already sense the need to survive the onslaught of digital-age options and high-percentage attrition to other choices, many urgently. 


  • What does it mean to move beyond just classroom tech focus to alter the whole way schools are organized? What are the really epic societal changes underway fueling a new education trend to become experiential-learning focused around personalized digital learning? How would regular people even define experiential or personalization – and why does this matter?


1st ½ Day: School Problems Today Transitioning to Digital

2nd Full Day: Steps on the Road – Learn & Discuss
