Our schedule changes page lists crucial cancellations, presenter and room changes, and other updates as they come in. For Sunday, Joe Fatheree’s session “Unleash the Beast” has been canceled; instead, Harvey Silver will present “The CRAFT of Thoughtful Teacher Leadership” (Session 2117) as part of the Carter Series on Educational Leadership. Also, Carol Ann Tomlinson will join Lisa D. Westman for "The Great Debate: Differentiation Is Hard" (Session GD2). Tap the "Schedule Changes" icon in the app or check the website for more.
Please be aware that because of fire marshal regulations, ASCD cannot allow standing room only in events that are filled to capacity. We will have to ask attendees to leave if a session fills up. We encourage you to use the session planner to have back-up choices picked out. Also, be sure to show up early if you're concerned about hearing a popular speaker. Read more about our policy.
Session materials are now available to download from our website or through our mobile app. Don't let a slow connection or a large file size hold you up on-site; download the session materials before heading to your sessions. Get instructions.
The afternoon sessions have finished, and you're anxious to meet with cohorts to share your learning. Or you're on your own and want a quiet place to think about your experience. Don't worry about finding seating in the convention center or a corner off the beaten path. We've set up a Reflection Pool in the Anaheim Marriott, Level 1, Platinum Ballroom. It's just a quick walk across the plaza and perfect for gathering to plan and share—and reflect. Also available: Yoga for Educators. Learn more.
A variety of food trucks will be on the Grand Plaza in front of the Anaheim Convention Center today. Find more information in the "Event Info" section of the app and on page 105 of the program book . In addition, Visit Anaheim has worked with local restaurants to provide exclusive promotional offers and discounts to attendees during the conference. Show your event badge to save at participating restaurants, attractions, and much more. Explore special dining offers.
ASCD is offering complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the weekend, but we do ask that you make thoughtful choices when using shared resources. Learn more.
