Description

The EdVisions Ed°Expo 2018 Twin Cities: Fuel your vision! event will be held in St. Paul, MN on January 26, 2018. Leaders, educators and innovators transforming their schools and districts will share their experiences personalizing learning and creating opportunities for deeper, more relevant learning. Students will share how learner-centered approaches have impacted their school experience and their lives.

Attendees will enjoy networking opportunities, workshops and activities, student presentations and project demonstrations, powerful keynotes and immersive school tours. Participants will learn about the drivers of personalization through the EdVisions design essentials (Ed°Essentials), get inspired by fellow educators, and find tangible, proven ways to start transforming the learning in their school or classroom.

In addition to excellent content and dialogue, participants can see the Ed°Essentials in action through a school immersion visit to a learner-centered school (transportation provided). There will be opportunities to talk with teachers and students and see student-driven, PBL in action. Space is limited, and advance sign-up is required. *See school descriptions below*

If you are interested in project-based learning (PBL), student voice and choice, the importance of social/emotional learning, career pathways and future ready learning, this day of learning is designed for you! Come spend the day learning from practitioners and students from successful, learner-centered schools and programs.

Jemar is a firm believer that education needs to be restructured for the benefit of all learners, to make sure we enjoy our learning and fully succeed. He believes, “changing the structure of education won't be easy, but we can do it!”
