February 21, 2018AcceleratED is a one-day professional development conference focused on technology integration strategies for educational administrators.
At AcceleratED, administrators attend hands-on workshops on a wide variety of relevant topics, led by hand-picked facilitators in small, personalized teaching and learning environments.
Facilitators are a driving force behind the hands-on culture of AcceleratED. Our facilitators are hand-picked and vetted with great care to ensure workshops of the highest quality.
Walk away with solutions, not just a to-do list. More than a list of tools, AcceleratED focuses on developing the skills and strategies needed to effectively integrate those tools into teaching and learning.
AcceleratED is a supportive community working together to improve education. Workshops are designed to be small, personalized environments where administrators can teach and learn collaboratively.
Administrators know that building real knowledge takes more than one class period, so AcceleratED’s sessions are longer to allow for in-depth discussion and collaboration that produces more developed strategies.
Leaders are only as strong as the team supporting them. Administrators can empower their educators by bringing them to IntegratED, our conference for educators. IntegratED offers opportunities to learn and grow as a team, and to collaborate to develop practical strategies.
Administrators that attend AcceleratED are invited to stay and attend IntegratED for only $70 more.
