EduCon Philly is coming in January! (educational conference)

EduCon is a unique educational conference that focuses on conversations and innovations for improving education. It is held in Philadelphia, January 27th-29th and you can also participate virtually.

EduCon follows some very interesting guiding principals:

Guiding Principles of EduCon

  • Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members 
  • Our schools must be about co-creating - together with our students - the 21st Century Citizen 
  • Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around 
  • Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate 
  • Learning can - and must - be networked 

EduCon does not feature "presentations" but rather "conversations", similar to EdCamp, except more planned out ahead of time.

You can also propose a conversation topic that you would like to lead at EduCon.

These guiding principals are also great ideas for all schools and educators to follow.

You can register to attend in person, or to attend virtually here. Registration for in-person attendance is $150 ($100 for Philadelphia schools).

EduCon always receives high marks from attendees. It's an event not to be missed, whether you attend in-person or virtually.
