K12 Innovation Summit 2019

The K12 Innovation Summit is more than a conference. This gathering feels more like a two-day workshop with a powerful network of educators! It’s definitely an opportunity to grow the leadership capacity of your team and to get everyone trained in the key strategies included in the InnovateK12 toolkit. The breakout sessions are designed to ensure that your team has the skills needed to be successful. In other words, this isn’t the time to go it alone... bring your team!

“The K12 Innovation Summit was extremely informative and motivating. The sessions were all interactive and engaging. Joining the cohort gives you access to software that helps to manage the crowdsourcing of ideas. More importantly, the districts in the cohort are very willing to share successes and failures to help your district implement your own crowd-sourced innovation event. I would definitely recommend attending the summit and learning what it is all about.”

- Scott Shinaberry, National Board Certified Teacher, Upper Arlington Schools, OH

InnovateK12 is proud to welcome an international thought-leader in the innovation space - AJ Juliani! Don’t miss this chance to hear AJ’s thoughts on Monday morning about how to be intentional about innovation during his keynote at the InnovateK12 Summit. Join AJ as he poses the question, “As the world changes, how do we educate differently so students, teachers, and staff are empowered to thrive in this environment?” That is the key to the InnovateK12 toolkit. In A.J.’s keynote session at the 2019 K12 Innovation Summit, you’ll learn a clear process to guide risk-taking and lead change so you can be intentional about innovation in your classroom, school, and life. Juliani shows why we need intentional innovation and how to implement it effectively. The team at InnovateK12 is excited to offer this great opportunity to connect with AJ and to learn more about how to be intentional with innovation.
