Welcome to New Hampshire's Summer Statewide Educator Conference

During this two-day conference, educators, administrators, higher education practitioners, policymakers, tech experts and more will come together to listen, talk, problem solve and learn. The work focuses on two main questions: "How can this transform instruction?" and "How will this support all learners?" Through a blend of breakout sessions, meet and greets with national experts and tech partners, Maker Faire fun and more, educators will have the chance to find the best path to support transforming instruction in their classroom and school.




Conference 2.0: What's that?

This means we are not only transforming instruction, but we're also "flipping," at least in part, the conference. All materials—from presentations, content and readings—will be posted on the platform ahead of the big day. We encourage you to use The New Hampshire Network Platform as a space to share your thoughts, collaborate with your team members, work in breakout groups and check out content.
