Description

District ​Management ​Group ​(DMGroup) ​will ​hold ​its ​second ​Leadership ​Development ​Meeting ​of ​2017 ​– ​titled ​"Innovating ​with ​Impact: ​Moving ​from ​Bold ​Ideas ​to ​Sustainable ​Results" ​– ​on ​October ​12-13th ​at ​The ​Westin ​Philadelphia ​in ​Philadelphia, ​PA. ​

Given ​​the ​​many ​​challenges ​​facing ​​school ​​districts ​​today, ​​identifying ​​and ​​implementing ​​innovative ​​solutions ​​and ​​turning ​​them ​​into ​​sustainable ​​and ​​scalable ​​results ​​is ​​more ​​important ​​than ​​ever. ​At ​the ​LDM, ​district ​teams ​will ​explore ​best ​practices ​and ​lessons ​learned ​for ​innovating ​in ​schools ​and ​districts, ​including ​innovations ​such ​as ​personalized ​learning, ​1:1 ​learning ​environments, ​blended ​learning, ​project-based ​learning, ​and ​more. ​We ​will ​analyze ​and ​share ​lessons ​learned ​from ​innovations ​by ​actual ​school ​districts, ​with ​a ​focus ​on ​sustainability, ​program ​evaluation, ​and ​the ​impact ​disruptive ​innovations ​have ​on ​student ​outcomes ​and ​operational ​efficiency.

Cross-functional ​district ​teams ​will ​have ​the ​opportunity ​to ​collaboratively ​tackle ​problems ​regarding ​innovation ​in ​their ​school ​district, ​and ​grow ​leadership ​capacity ​through ​group ​problem ​solving, ​facilitated ​discussions, ​exercises, ​and ​planning ​time. ​District ​teams ​will ​apply ​our ​diagnostic ​tools ​and ​field-tested ​strategies ​to ​develop ​an ​action ​plan ​customized ​for ​their ​district.
