Event News

For more than four decades, the ISTE conference has been recognized as one of the world’s largest education events. It’s where educators and education leaders gather to engage in hands-on learning, share best practices, and hear ideas from leading thinkers.

This year at ISTE, the Leaning Counsel is teaming up with Cisco to drive awareness and curiosity around hybrid logistics. Hybrid logistics is changing from being defined as the traditional school model offering video conference attendance, or on-campus and digital homework study, to a structurally transformed education system. ​ This new definition of hybrid alters time and space use with advanced logistics to maximize personalization and unburden teachers in an era of severe staffing shortages.  ​

At ISTE, two activities around hybrid logistics should top your list to take part in: an interactive session and reception.

 

Sunday, June 26th - Personalized Hybrid Logistics Experience

1:30-2:30 pm – Location: Room #338, 3rd Floor above Halls I-J

       Experience the "uberization" of learning with personalized hybrid logistics workflow. Participate in the experiential session and earn your own light saber from the EduJedi Leadership Society.

       Pretend to be a student, administrator or teacher in a dynamic demonstration of the future of learning to conquer personalization.  This professional development experience had already been played by thousands of district and school leaders nationwide and is now premiering at ISTE through the partnership of Cisco and Learning Counsel.  Don't miss this opportunity to physically experience the way the days will flow and what each role will typically be doing once advanced hybrid logistics unburdens teachers and administrators and brings global efficiencies already found in  other industries through Cisco transformational network logistics.

Experience Better Teacher Efficiencies and True Personalized Learning Paths

These activities will highlight a big new idea: hybrid logistics changes systemic inequities with a restructure of space and time use towards personalized pace for every student. In this system, teachers can  focus more of their time on direct instruction.​

The Learning Counsel has been an early proponent of hybrid logistics and is especially enthusiastic to help schools use this model to combat the national teacher shortage.

A recent article by LeiLani Cauthen, Learning Counsel CEO, revealed that up to one million new teachers will be needed in 2022, and these teachers are not likely to be found through traditional staffing methods. “Instead,” says Cauthen, “it’s time to rethink the learning delivery mechanism which requires certain ratios of teachers-to-students. The manufacturing-line model is under serious assault and schools must think with new directions. Converting all or parts of their curriculum to the new efficiencies of hybrid logistics rearranges time and space use while offering better personalization through teachers more succinctly using their essential skills. The hybrid logistics proposition allows those certified or credentialed faculties to be “stretched” but not overburdened.  This is the first model to deftly utilize human teaching more efficiently in a “middle-ground” between fully virtual and fully live-on-campus schooling.

Finding like-minded visionaries within the Cisco organization, the Learning Counsel has partnered with Cisco at ISTE, recognizing them as the source of vision on transformational networks that enable hybrid logistics.
