Schools Designed for Digital:
Intersecting Mobility & Data

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 “Schools Designed for Digital” as the next natural stage for the market to go through. The event will prep the conversation to evolve over the next year.
