Catalyzing change in education is on everyone's mind--and we invite you to come be a part of the process of change
Big Ideas Fest is a unique three-day gathering focused on catalyzing change in education. It brings together education stakeholders from K-12, higher education and informal learning, within a high energy and immersive design environment. This year, from December 4-7, we will gather educators, students, administrators, policymakers, edupreneurs, education technologists, and researchers, to actively collaborate in designing high impact solutions to pressing challenges in education.
Produced annually by ISKME, Big Ideas Fest is truly a terrific opportunity for cross-fertilization of ideas, with storytelling panels and presentations from leading innovators who provide first-hand accounts of how a simple spark of curiosity and empathy can fuel change; interactive networking with education's change agents; and Action Collab design-thinking workshops that engage groups to brainstorm, prototype, and ultimately create solutions to challenges in education.
Please join us December 4-7, 2016 for ISKME's 8th annual Big Ideas Fest at the Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose, California.
Hotel reservations should be made directly with the Dolce Hayes Mansion. Click here to reserve your room or call the hotel directly at (408) 226-3200, and make sure to request the group rate for “Big Ideas Fest."
