The Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit is a 9-day FREE virtual event with practical, inspiring presentations from amazing educators.
I’m excited to tell you about a great conference you can attend in your pajamas from the comfort of your own couch!
In December, you can take part in the Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit. It’s an online conference that features nine presentations from educators who are doing amazing things in technology, pedagogy, inquiry and more.
We have some fantastic speakers, including:
two Global Teacher Prize finalists,
a New York Times best-selling author,
state and national teachers of the year, and
creators of some amazing blogs and online resources for teachers.
Each presenter brings a ton of value, inspiration and encouragement. I know you’ll finish this digital summit ready to do new, exciting things in your classroom.
The best part about this event? It’s totally free. No cost whatsoever.
Here’s what you need to know about the digital summit:
A new video will be released every day from December 16-24. You’ll be able to find them on the speakers’ pages at DitchSummit.com.
From December 25-31, the videos will stay visible so you can catch up with any that you miss.
After December 31, the summit will be closed and the videos will disappear.
Why late December?
It’s during winter break here in the United States, and it’s a time when many teachers recharge and get ready for a new semester (or new calendar year).
The new year is a time for making new plans and setting new goals.
If you’re on break, you don’t have papers to grade, classes to teach and meetings to attend! A little extra time will make this the perfect opportunity.
The speaker list is unbelievable. I brainstormed some of the most inspiring, innovative educators I could imagine and asked them to be part of this event … and thankfully, pretty much everyone I asked said yes!
