Do your district schools offer the most competitive STEM programs? Are your high schools preparing students for careers beyond college? Is your technology investment supporting teachers' instruction? How are other MA districts changing to reflect the new landscape of work in the 21st century?
These are just a few of the questions we'll be discussing at the 2019 LearnLaunch Across Boundaries Conference. We've designed the conference with you in mind to bring together the best mix of entrepreneurs, education leaders, investors, education companies, technology innovators, and fellow educators from New England and beyond to help expand your horizons and learn from top researchers and practitioners.
With digital technology changing all sectors, consider attending the LearnLaunch Across Boundaries Conference to gain insight into how school districts of all sorts are addressing these changes.
