We are making a clean break from the traditional, factory model educational conference! Your presence at this event is NOT for the purpose of making yourselves available to hundreds of sales people marketing anything and everything digital - regardless of the quality - to you!
The purpose of this event is to "light this candle" of change! This refers to the comment made by Alan Shepard, the first American into space, who was frustrated by the hours he spent sitting in the capsule on top of the rocket. Tired of the delays and checks, checks, checks, he demanded that they "Light this candle!"
Eerily similar, there have been years - decades - of talk, talk, talk, about creating 21st century education. Well, it's time to Light This Candle and let that rocket launch education into the 21st century! It's been over a decade since we heard Sir Ken Robinson's inspiring TED talk, "Do Schools Kill Creativity?", yet, despite this talk being viewed millions of times, schools are still killing creativity - and much more.
It's time to stop talking, stop tinkering around the edges and MAKE THAT PARADIGM SHIFT - now!
This conference will light that candle! And education can finally escape the gravitational pull of factory model education!
