Featuring Congressman George Miller, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and Broad Prize Winner Superintendent Alberto Carvalho of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Future@Now: Roadmap to the Digital Transition will showcase these and other noteworthy keynote speakers in five compelling sessions including:


The Call to Action — Students SpeakBefore you dive in to plan your digital transition, listen to the call to action from the stakeholders who have the largest stake in its success: students. Hear how digital learning is impacting their achievement and find out how to incorporate their voices into your change movement.
Planning Your TransitionHear from districts that are on the cusp of launching their digital transition and policymakers who are helping to pave the way. Thought-leaders from the government, education, and private sectors provide firsthand insight into their planning processes and navigating the leap from traditional to digital.
Creating a Culture and Community of ChangeHear from public and private change agents about how to create a culture of change — both inside of your organization and in your community of influence. Glean best practices from some of the most successful change initiatives in the country about how to create a culture that maximizes the opportunities for change to flourish.
Leading from the Front: Developing Teacher LeadersWith teachers leading everything from adoption committees to digital peer-mentoring courses, classroom educators have become a critical component of the change movement. Hear about the key roles that Teacher Leaders play in digital transitions, and the key strategies for engaging them in the process.
Digital by Design: Integrating Digital Resources into the ClassroomCelebrate the successes of those educators who have deployed digital textbooks into classrooms and begun yielding results. Get insight about how to successfully merge digital resources and instructional methodologies to yield the best outcomes for both students and teachers.


The day will culminate with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan taking us on a live visit to a digital classroom in Washington D.C. as part of Discovery Education's and the White House's "Of the People" webinar series.
