Yes! Technically, everyone is going to be a first-time attendee, as this is the first ASCD Empower conference! We're reinventing the education conference experience to meet the needs of today's educators and students. Come prepared to learn, engage, and network with your colleagues in education. We are excited to welcome you to Anaheim! The more you prepare and put into your experience, the greater your experience will be. Whether you're a first-time attendee to an ASCD conference or a veteran and wondering what's changed, on this page you will find tips to enhance your first ASCD Empower experience. ASCD has also gathered tips on how to justify your conference attendance to your school or district.
Your vision is to change the world- one child at a time. It's our vision, too. That's why we empower you to help your students develop essential skills that extend beyond diagramming sentences and calculating square roots. Although those skills are important, we know that supporting the whole child requires helping students to prepare for navigating their careers, contributing to their communities, and achieving their full potential. Our focus is on transformational leadership, teaching and learning, poverty and equity, redefining student success, global engagement, and the whole child- the components you need to help advance student achievement. In the coming months we'll add a sampling of actual ASDC Empower17 sessions to each area of focus.
