Digital tools and resources aren't silver bullets that magically transform education, but online learning, blended learning, and the use of technology can increase student opportunities and improve student outcomes, when developed by thoughtful school leaders and implemented by effective teachers.
We seek to celebrate K-12 digital learning practitioners, researchers, and policymakers; learn from each other; and share best (and worst!) practices in this new and innovative conference.
Please join us for the inaugural Digital Learning Annual Conference in Austin on April 1-3, 2019, to share your ideas and experiences, learn from others on similar journeys, take back actionable changes to improve your work, and consider longer-term strategies.
We are adding new information to this website every week! If you'd like to receive occasional DLAC updates please add your name and email address below.
Who DLAC is for
DLAC aims to bring together practitioners working on real change and is designed for a wide range of attendees, including:
Educators (teachers, school/district leaders) in online/blended schools seeking to share best practices and learn from one another
Mainstream school educators seeking to start or develop system-level (school or district) digital learning programs and strategies
Companies and non-profit organizations providing digital tools, resources, professional learning, and other support
Researchers who work with educators to implement evidence-based improvements and enhancements
State education agency personnel and other policymakers who seek to support digital learning in a range of schools
This won't be a "sit and get" conference. You will have opportunities to share your experiences, learn from collaborators, catch up with colleagues, and meet new friends in both facilitated sessions and informal settings.
So much of the value of a conference comes from the "hallway conversations" outside the sessions. We aim to maximize those opportunities while maintaining the benefits of more traditional conference programming.
