Extraordinary Educator's Conference Meets Today's New K-12 Professional Development Needs Head-On

Another innovative conference feature are sessions called Ed Camps, in which a grade-level-specific group and their presenter decide at the beginning what they are going to talk about.

The lineup of presenters is replete with education luminaries. "This is a dedicated team of truly extraordinary educators," adds Maggs. "They are thought leaders who, as individuals, are the movers and shakers in K-12 education, committed to improving learning success for all children. Participants will learn things that they have not encountered at any other event."

Included on the list of top presenters is Yong Zhao, PhD, an internationally known scholar, author, and speaker whose work focuses on the implications of globalization and technology for education. He has designed schools that cultivate global competence, developed computer games for language learning, and founded research and development institutions to explore innovative education models. He has published over 100 articles and 20 books.

Joining Yong Zhao will be Rick Wormeli, who is widely regarded as one of the most innovative, passionate, well-researched, and practical educators on the planet, literacy expert Tim Shanahan, PhD, math expert Greg Tang, urban education expert Baruti Kafele, multiple-award-winning school-improvement and literacy expert Douglas Fisher, PhD, and many more.
