"The more complex the world becomes, the more creative we need to be to meet its challenges."

Have you ever imagined a different vision for education in your community? How can you describe and plan for something that is uncertain and rapidly evolving. has your district committed to and invested in whole system change with hopes of transformation, having not seen expected results? How can you build the models that move from resistance and passivity to active ownership with all stakeholders? How will you lead and build capacity for others to lead through the changes you are making?

 

What is EdShift?

EdShift is a unique Education Gabfest that will provide school districts and key stakeholders with the opportunity to navigate this shift and work side-by-side with world-renowned experts and industry leaders. EdShift is not your typical conference. It is collaborative, creative, and actionable. 

What EdShift is NOT.

In our time together we will not waste time by just describing broken systems. You will not be talked at by the "experts" who ask nothing of you and seek nothing from you. You will not leave challenged but ill-equipped to move forward.

Who attends EdShift?

As a conference attendee you are encouraged to bring a four member team to represent key stakeholders in making positive change. Who is on this team? Educational leaders, board members, community leaders, and students. Bring a team that will work to enact real change.
