We do things a little differently here at EdSummit

An interactive, creative conference that calls upon presenters and participants to take an active role in leading and learning. EdSummit LASD builds on the work LASD has been doing for the last four years to “revolutionize learning for all students.” This unique learning opportunity is designed with the LASD Learning Principles in mind. These learning principles help us to paint a picture of what it looks like to revolutionize learning and will serve as guideposts for teachers when designing learning experiences that meet the needs of all students. Sessions at EdSummit will be organized by both the learning strands and the LASD Learning Principles.
