We can’t wait to see you!



Deep Dives: An integral element of the conference experience since we launched 10 years ago, Deep Dives provide immersive experiences that aim to support you in experiencing deeper learning for yourself. Will you dive into disco, time travel into the future, or develop ways to engage families and students as agents of change? The possibilities are endless.

Community Connections: Intentional small-by-design sessions throughout the event create an opportunity to build relationships, process experiences from the event, and discuss, plan, and act toward the future. Your Deep Dive colleagues will become your small group for three sessions during the event.

Workshops: Two rounds of 90-minute workshops offered on Day 1 (March 28) and Day 3 (March 30) of the event will connect you with practitioners and highlight promising practices. Session descriptions and details are posted in Sched with topics ranging from student agency to culturally responsive pedagogy to school transformation.

Den Talks: Opportunities for attendees to engage in deep conversations on issues that matter in education. No slide decks, just real talk–-the den is a place for attendees to connect with luminaries, hear transformative stories, and ask questions. Den talks are moderated by a variety of leaders from the deeper learning community and will feature speakers from PBLWorks, EL Education, The Equity Lab, New Tech Network, Envision Education and Big Picture Learning. The DL Den is the place to be!


Deeper Learning has partnered with the What School Could Be online community to keep the learning and conversation going year-round.  What School Could Be is a free, community-powered platform that provides a powerful forum for educators to connect, envision, test and sustain student-driven deeper learning models.

Bring proof of a negative Covid test, layers for the San Diego coastal weather, sunscreen or a hat for our outdoor kickoff event, comfortable walking shoes, and a computer or tablet (some sessions will require these).

What should I know about checking in a the event launch?
Doors open at 1p on March 28th at the Education Promenade (2861 Womble Road). Before you arrive, ensure you have created a Sched profile and signed up for sessions, and that you have your photo of your negative Covid test. Find the line for your badge by your Last Name and show proof of your negative Covid test to the student ambassador. They'll give you a badge, and send you to get your conference SWAG.

Where do I go for help during the conference?
There is a help desk at HTe, HTM, and HTHI. In addition, there is registration support at the Education Promenade for any Sched issues or questions.

Are there any other conference experiences I should know about?

Connection Corner in the HTe Atrium provides a space for informal connections. Lounge on a couch, take some selfies at the selfie station, or mix and mingle! This is the perfect spot to find new friends or meet up with old friends.
