Delivering on the real promise of online, blended and digital learning


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.

DLAC celebrates K-12 digital learning practitioners, researchers, and policymakers; learn from each other; and share best (and worst!) practices in this new and innovative conference. Our sessions our shorter, livelier, and more interactive than most conferences, creating a high-energy gathering built on sharing and conversations. To get a feel for DLAC, see our 2019 highlight video below.

We often add new information to this website. If you would like to receive occasional DLAC updates please add your name and email address below.

DLAC 2020 planning and status

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

Agenda Highlights

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.
