What is activ-con?

activ-con iconactiv-con 2017 was TUESDAY, JULY 25, 2017

activ-con 2017 was a full-day conference gathering of explorers, innovators and leaders in K-12 active learning spaces simultaneously held in New York and Iowa. Attendees in each regional location didn't “sit n’ get” as is common in traditional conferences. Participants, instead, joined with fellow explorers in a series of learning excursions and missions. 

Each excursion required attendees to actively investigate the opportunities, strategies, and challenges to consider when envisioning 21st century learning spaces that can support collaboration, community, creativity, and curiosity. Participants were also hands-on with furniture and technology vendors as well as national experts throughout the day.

activ-con 2017 at LHRIC was exclusively available to TLI and Model Schools member districts.
