The Fusion Experience
Be in the same room as the best and the brightest education leaders.
Intimate & Tailored
Unlike other large conferences, Fusion feels manageable. Come ready to solve your biggest problem of practice with the support of leaders who have been there.
Every speaker and workshop is specifically chosen and produced to ensure you get the most out of your time. We do not call for proposals and just hope the session is good.
Who attends Fusion
The Fusion content is geared toward leadership-level positions but we welcome all applicants.
2018 Fusion Speakers
Pamela Cantor, M.D
Turnaround for Children
Dr. Bror Saxberg
Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
Fusion made me feel hopeful that there are people across the nation who are realizing that we need to make big changes in our educational systems. There are thought leaders and school leaders who are on the same page while engaging in rich discussions about how to make learning more meaningful for our students.
—Kami Thordarson, Campbell Union School District
No one has anything figured out. It’s great to have a community come together and have conversations. Working through problems with people, having a little consultancy group or advisory board—you don’t get that from other conferences. You don’t often get the opportunity to voice your opinion.
—Steve Myrthil, formerly Director of Digital Learning & IT Support, Achievement First
The personalized approach was excellent at the EdSurge conference, drilling down on what you specifically want to learn. You’ll also be inspired by those you meet. The people and the things they are doing are phenomenal!
—Joel Shimoji, Vice Principal, J.H. Bruns Collegiate, Manitoba, Canada
I liked the spirit of working with others and having a common problem of practice. I left Fusion with clear, tangible next steps.
