Personalized Learning for the Whole Learner
Personalized learning is not just about the technology. At Fusion 2018 we will bridge the gap between theory and practice—focusing not just on technology but integrating what learning sciences, community development and social-emotional research can teach us about the holistic picture of personalized learning in schools and districts.

Meet the Featured 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.
