Ninth Annual Conference on Education
The Annual Conference on Education brings together voices from around the state and beyond for an engaging and interactive day focused on the future of education in Delaware. This year’s conference will feature “Idea Exchanges:” small group conversations matched to the core areas of Student Success 2025. Education, government, nonprofit, and business leaders will facilitate these informal conversations to bring participants together around a variety of issues, including technology in the classroom. Topics like “Developing Growth Mindset through Gaming”, “Re-imagining Learning through Technology”, and “Investing in Technology Infrastructure” will explore the ways in which tech facilitates and enriches learning. Idea Exchanges will provide participants a chance to share and learn collaboratively from others, receive answers to their questions, find ways to get involved, connect work underway and identify opportunities to make progress. We will be joined at the conference this year by Barrel of Makers, Delaware’s first makerspace.
Teachers and administrators who attend the conference can earn 4 professional development credit hours. To receive this credit, one must register for the conference through the event page and register for the course through the Professional Development Management System (PDMS).
The Vision Coalition of Delaware is a public-private partnership composed of a broad range of Delawareans who work together to improve Delaware public education.
The coalition’s leadership developed the Vision 2015 plan in 2006. Ten years later, with Delaware moving on more than 75 percent of the recommendations from that plan, the Vision Coalition collaborated with Delawareans to develop a new 10-year plan.
Starting in January 2014, 4,000 Delawareans shared their ideas, perspectives, and opinions during the plan development process. The result is Student Success 2025. The goal of Student Success 2025 is to prepare every Delaware student for a lifetime of success.
