Digital Curriculum Sustainability Discussions
Get the Briefing. Beat Back Enrollment Loss. Become Expo Learning.
The natural change continuum for the digital transition of schools ends in “Becoming Expo Learning.” This year’s Digital Transition Discussions will be about what that means, and about the barriers that still inhibit schools from even getting to workable strategies.
Confidence in public schools nationally is waning, causing enrollment attrition nationwide. This is fueling the choice movement, which continues to grow as certain evidence of confidence erosion. Any school can learn about what a choice really should be – and it’s not what most leaders think it is.Education is mid the change of the century – and the discussion now goes in the direction of wholesale structural change as well as towards needing new basics.
Most school leaders need simplified leadership principles to manage the many new technologies spreading in classrooms. We encourage you to bring a team so that all staff can participate, network, and see a handful of 10-minute “show-and-discuss” moments about new sponsor offerings in things like social-emotional learning, single sign-on, software collections, and more.
Every year we travel to your city we “level up” the discussion. We’ll help you tackle the tough questions about what’s happening inside the digital shift, and what that means for the actual teaching and learning.
The goal is to help every administrator, principal, instructional technology specialist and teacher through this challenging time in education transformation.
The point of these free professional development days is to help all learners everywhere become more engaged in knowledge acquisition for life success.
New for 2020:
- Copies of our latest special report, including “Becoming Expo Learning,” whitepapers and a Workbook for the day.

“Attending a Learning Counsel event is a good opportunity to create or stretch a vision, is a good opportunity to develop strategies to implement a 1:1 initiative, is a good opportunity to learn about resources and is a good opportunity to network with vendors. It becomes a great opportunity when school districts come in teams because in addition to the information presented, your team spends the day collaborating and idea sharing which truly develops a shared responsibility of creating a digitally enhanced educational environment that improves instruction and learning.”
- Eric Godfrey, Superintendent,
Buckeye Union High School District, Phoenix, AZ
“I appreciate the lens on innovation, looking at data driving that process and thinking about the capacity for that in the education arena from the classroom to administration.”
