The Convergence Hour

Leading Education Through the Second Renaissance

Today, we find ourselves leading through a second renaissance, marked in our education system by a transition from the traditional classroom to modern, relevant learning experiences. At the 2020 Convergence Hour, hear first from a practitioner effectively leading a school district to the future of learning, next from a global expert on developing new pathways to navigate progress amid the second renaissance, and finally from an education futurist dedicated to cultivating a national vision for the future of learning and reverse-engineering the practical pathway to actionize it.
