5th Annual

Arcadia Innovation Summit

June 21, 2019


We are very excited to announce that author and student advocate Katie Martin, Ph.D., will be our keynote speaker at the 5th Annual Arcadia Innovation Summit on 6/21/19!

Martin strives to create classrooms that empower students to share their work, as opposed to preparing them for a test, so that all children can thrive in a changing world. Her book, Learner-Centered Innovation: Spark Curiosity, Ignite Passion, and Unleash Genius, explores questions such as “What if learners were valued for their diverse talents and not just our traditional model of ‘smart’?”; “What if I could create new and better experiences for those I serve?”; “What if I could inspire students to learn, to discover their passions and to share their ideas with the world?” read full bio

Lessons and content should be shared freely.

Silos should be minimized as we grow and explore together

Engagement
