Vision and Overview
Our vision is to dramatically accelerate the transformation in education by supporting educators who work hard everyday to change lives.
Let's shape the future together. We owe it to our youths. We have committed the next 10 years of our lives to create the most important education conference in the world that drives real change. We will achieve this by working closely with a select group of senior educators committed to making a difference. We will always keep the bar high on attendee quality and will always grow without losing the intimate peer-to-peer nature of the experience.
Future of Education Conference Overview
In the next 15 years, youths will enter the workforce at a time of profound social, economical, workplace and technological change. 50% of all jobs will be replaced or heavily disrupted. There will be lots of jobs, just not enough youths with relevant skills to fulfill them. As senior educators, we all bear the responsibility to work together and prepare our youths for this change. The Future of Education Conference and platform is dedicated to this mission. We want to drive real change by bringing together a group of senior educators who are committed to aligning the future of education with the future of work. That is why this conference is invitation-only, purpose-driven and action-oriented.
We have designed a unique and innovative virtual conference experience focused on peer-to-peer network of senior education industry decision makers as well as actionable content this is highly relevant to shape the future of education. As captured in detail below, the agenda is carefully designed to have high impact networking opportunities between senior educators. The conference starts with a live 3 hours keynote session where 50+ senior educators will introduce their talk in about 90 seconds each. After the keynote, delegates will have access to the new videos added to the Future of Education Framework with over 50+ hours of sessions to be consumed at their convenience until 31st December. The conference experience includes an opportunity to request three 1:1 introductions with other senior leaders you resonate with as well as an invitation to join the Future of Education Leaders Group (for educators only). This group is an exclusive community of senior educators for peer-to-peer collaboration across the year.
You will leave this forum with not just ideas but a real tribe of fellow senior educators who are on the same journey of systematic transformation. This is not a theoretical forum on the future of learning - it is a highly interactive conference designed to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and establish collaboration opportunities. All of the content is embedded in reality and is presented by your peers that are in decision making positions in the field of education. We have a restricted number of spots per school board and post-secondary institutes to ensure we bring together a wide range of transformation projects and ideas across Canada and the world.
This period of rapid transformation doesn't have to be a threat. It can be an advantage for our youths and the planet if we are willing to accelerate the changes we are making. The team at Future of Education Conference is committed to supporting our educators so that the next generation entering the workforce is driving innovation that helps humanity rather than being the ones disrupted by the future of work. Let's shape the future together. We owe it to our youths.

Conference Format and Theme - Align Future of Education with Future of Work
The conference will have two separate streams for k-12 and Post Secondary institutions respectively.
In each of these streams, there are three carefully designed sub-themes to support educators engage, collaborate and drive real change - WHAT, HOW and WHERE

Theme No 2: HOW - How we are teaching our youths
