Powerful Learning Conference - Kansas City

I attended the Powerful Learning Conference in Kansas City today. The conference takes place over two days at the Westin Crown Center and is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Liberty School District is a member of the Missouri Professional Learning Communitites organization and we had several staff members attending and presenting.

The keynote was a presentation by Carol Tomlinson and Jay McTighe entitled Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design. During the luncheon I was on stage to help present a variety of awards hosted by the Missouri Professional Learning Communities. I was also able to visit with teachers from around the state and met several teachers who listen to the Speaking of History podcast.
