“Analytics & What’s Really Missing in Education’s Software”
LeiLani Cauthen
CEO and Publisher of the Learning Counsel

Today’s software publishers are building some awesome courseware and content to wow you digitally, so find out what’s the missing-est thing of all. Hint, it might be your users. Also hosting Book Club Panel Discussion included Thursday.

Every year, Learning Counsel gathers together education leaders and industry to discuss national research and have a moment of enlightened context in the shift to digital curriculum. The Gathering is the only event nationally to focus on what’s going on in education’s software landscape, the implications to networks, operations, and teaching. Nothing between the classroom and the central office is being left untouched.

The event is known for exceptional and unconventional presentations by leaders at every station in Education. All come to share and learn.

This year’s theme is “Analytics” as the next natural stage for the market to go through. The event will prep the conversation to evolve over the next year.

Plus, this year we’re launching more committees and more time for them. They need it, this is big-deal stuff here, people. Not joking around.


Networking! Join peers also concerned with the transition to digital curriculum now that nearly 80% of students nationwide are using digital devices in class and consumer-side digital learning spend is higher than the combined spend of all the nation’s schools.

Professional Development. Special briefings and discussions led by other educators on key topics. Just get there, it’s free!

Free! Didn’t we say it’s free? Yes it is! It’s sponsored by an array of different companies who will be there to mingle.

Spark creativity. Retreat from your usual routine in a place that rejuvenates by the calming waters of Lake Las Vegas.

Celebrate! Come on, our Awardees deserve a special ceremony for their awesomeness and a fist pump in ol’ Vegas, baby! Come help us with the top acclaimed school and district representatives – congratulate and meet.
