Online Summits

What is a summit?

Education Week summits offer a unique opportunity for our readers to engage directly with our newsroom and their invited guests – many who are experts and thought leaders in their fields. You will be able to have an open dialogue with our reporters, guests, and sponsors in as many sessions as you would like on a variety of topics.

Each session is a text-based discussion with no audio or video so you can participate from anywhere and are mobile/tablet friendly – all you’ll need to participate is a keyboard.

All our summits are accessible for a limited time after the original live conversation so make sure you register before the event date to gain access – and if you cannot attend live, you can still come back and explore the discussion. Join us to ask questions, share your own insights and best practices from your school and district, and walk away with new tips and information to help you do your job.
