This year’s Annual Conference is not only virtual, but is also Learning Forward’s 51st conference. We invite everyone to join us online for the first-ever fully virtual Learning Forward Annual Conference.

Our theme for this year is Innovate for Impact. The field of education is experiencing unprecedented times due to the impact of a global pandemic. Educators across the world are engaging in a variety of innovative practices to include; exploring equity implications, creating remote learning plans, enhancing social-emotional support, implementing hybrid learning models, transforming feedback for learning, and designing meaningful home/school connections. I am proud of each and every educator from across the country for making an impact on the lives of students and families. 

This year’s conference will be an amazing virtual experience.

The Learning Forward team and the conference committee has been working countless hours to provide a wide range of engaging learning experiences for you to enjoy during this conference. We hope that you take time to collaborate with your colleagues and to participate in meaningful conversations with educators from a different state or country. Over the course of the conference, we hope that you are inspired by our cutting-edge keynote speakers and dynamic concurrent speakers. I know each participant that attends this conference will walk away with at least one innovative and impactful idea that you can bring back home to share.

We invite you to explore the interactive virtual platform throughout the conference to learn about the latest books and resources in the field of education. Join our conference sponsors to learn about their latest products and services. The conference will have a variety of engaging daytime and afternoon activities to network with other attendees. This conference will also offer on-demand content to extend your learning after the conference. We value your time and believe that providing additional time to view conference sessions is not only convenient for you but essential for deeper learning.

We strive to provide you with the best virtual learning experience! We hope you will explore new ideas, identify quality resources, network, and most importantly ignite your passion to “Innovate for Impact” for all of the students and families that you serve.
