Future Ready Regional Summits(1)

 Permanent link   All Posts

The Alliance for Excellent Education and the U.S. Department of Education are hosting a series of Future Ready Regional Summits to improve teaching and student learning outcomes through the effective use of technology.

The summits will provide district leaders with the resources and expert support needed to build digital learning plans that align with instructional best practices, are implemented by highly trained teachers, and lead to personalized learning experiences for all students, particularly those from traditionally underserved communities.

“School districts across the country are helping teachers harness the power of technology to create personal learning environments for all students,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. “We want to make sure every child—whether he or she is in the inner-city, in a rural community, or on a Native American reservation—has access to knowledge and the chance to learn 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

These summits are free to attend and open to all superintendents who take the Future Ready Pledge, a promise to develop the human and technological capacity needed to personalize learning using digital tools. Over 1,300 superintendents have already taken the pledge. The summits are designed to build a very strong regional network to share information and expertise, and make progress toward district-driven Future Ready goals for ALL students.

The schedule is as follows:

  • February 11-12 Raleigh, North Carolina
  • February 17-18 Vancouver, Washington
  • March 2-3 Baltimore, Maryland
  • March 26-27 Atlanta, Georgia
  • April 13-14 Phoenix, Arizona
  • April 21-22 West Warwick, Rhode Island
