EDSURGE FUSION: WHAT WORKS

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 really work.

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?

 

What skills or competencies will future careers require?

How are educators preparing students with skills and knowledge to be continuous learners?

How is technology influencing, changing and creating alternatives to traditional postsecondary pathways?

 

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?

 


International Education Technology Conferences 2019

Twice per year, EdSurge creates a calendar of K-12 and higher education technology events in the U.S. and beyond. Each year, as the list grows, the font gets smaller and smaller—while there are still plenty of events to include.

That’s why in 2019, we’re offering something new: an additional events calendar dedicated to edtech events happening outside the U.S.

You can still expect some of the best parts of our K-12 and higher-ed calendars: dates, location and a short description for each event, plus a link to where you can find out more. And like our K-12 and higher-ed events calendars, this one is also free to download.

EdSurge primarily covers education and technology in the U.S., but you’ll occasionally see us at these events as well. (Here’s what we filed from Beijing and Tokyo last fall. ) EdSurge also offers its own annual edtech conference, Fusion, and our one-day entrepreneur workshop, Immersion.

Can’t make any of these events? EdSurge HigherEd regularly hosts meetups and Twitter chats on online learning and higher education technology. We also host virtual townhalls, called EdSurge Live, where we invite experts to speak about the latest trends and issues.

To stay up to date on those opportunities and more, subscribe to one of our three newsletters, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Not on social? We also have a podcast, which you can find it on Apple PodcastsSoundcloudSpotify or wherever you listen.

The calendar below names more than 50 edtech conferences happening outside the U.S. in 2019. For the few events where dates and location are still pending, you’ll see “TBA.” You can also click on the events for a link to their website to find out more.
