The "Liberation of Education" Online Conference Starts Today - I'm Speaking Twice

The Liberation of Education online conference starts today and runs in the evenings (US-Eastern Time) through this Thursday. 

I'm speaking twice at the conference: 
  • Tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at 6:45 pm my topic is "Parenting 2.0: Parenting for Life Success." Helping our child have success in school is, and should be, part of a larger plan to help them have success in life. We may not think we have the toolset for such an ambitious task, but we actually and innately do. When we shift our thinking to the level of creating the right conditions for growth and success, we find that we are eminently suited to partner with our student to not only map out and achieve success in school, but to start on the path of building deliberate success in life.
  • Thursday evening at 6:45 pm my topic is "Winning at School." The students at the top of their high school classes will tell you that they aren't necessarily scholars or even good learners, but that they are good at the "game of school." I'll share some of the results of a survey of thousands of teachers to find their best advice for the rules and strategies to win at the game of school, and then will discuss what really winning at school means.
The Liberation of Education Virtual Conference is bringing together over 30 renowned educational experts to empower parents with skills and resources to transform their child's education.
