The time for simply finding new tech tools has passed. At this collaborative conference, you’ll learn from and analyze ideas and models that have evidence of success. But that doesn’t mean every model will work for you. At EdSurge Fusion, you will work with educators across the country to ask the hard questions and walk away with next steps.

EdSurge works every day to tell the stories of what works. At EdSurge Fusion, we’ll bring those stories to light. Hear from educators and researchers sharing research-informed and evidence-based models and practices that work.


Then collaborate with participants to answer:

Ready to find out what’s working?

WHAT

WORKED?

IS IT EQUITABLE AND

SCALABLE?

HOW DO I MAKE

 IT WORK FOR ME?

Inspirational Keynote Speakers

DENA SIMMONS

LEVERAGING EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES TO HELP STUDENTS THRIVE

JONNY SUN

CREATIVE APPROACHES TO ENGAGE WITH STUDENTS

KRISTIN LEONG

UNLOCKING EMPATHY THROUGH AWKWARD CONVERSATIONS

EdSurge Fusion will focus on what’s working in these areas:

How are educators changing practice to teach to the whole learner?


How are advances in neuroscience and learning sciences helping us better understand the complex needs of our students?


What tools, resources and practices support the successful implementation of social-emotional learning and whole learner tenets?

How are schools and districts evaluating their technology integration based on evidence and research?


How are schools using technology to “redefine” (using the SAMR model) what learning looks like?


How do schools and districts plan for emerging technology?

Are innovations in technology enhancing or lessening opportunity gaps for disadvantaged students?


How can technology provide more equitable access to education?


How can technology create educational alternatives to traditional education for students and communities in need?

See schools and workplaces in context with a campus tour!

EdSurge has organized trips to visit exemplary schools, unique educational organizations and Silicon Valley companies so attendees can peek into innovative educational environments and workplaces. 


You’ll get to see and learn about different teaching and learning spaces, workplaces like those your students will be entering and community resources that can be partners in education.
