EVERFI, Inc., a leading social impact education innovator, today announced that its third annual LearnOn Conference, scheduled for Thursday, July 21, is on track to bring together nearly 5,000 K-12 educators from around the country. The half-day virtual conference offers attendees the opportunity to collaborate and connect with other education professionals on the most innovative education strategies while participating in sessions grounded in whole-child learning at no cost.
The theme for this year’s conference is Forward Together, a nod to some of the most challenging years of teaching for many educators during the COVID-19 pandemic — and how the path ahead is more manageable with the collective help of colleagues across the country and those who support educators.
The LearnOn conference provides teachers, counselors, and district administrators the space to recharge and collaborate on creating strategies and plans for the upcoming school year. Attendees will be able to choose from more than 25 breakout sessions to hear from experts and participate in discussions on pressing topics such as:
- How Gen Z students approach learning differently
- How teachers can deal with transitions and burnout
- How teachers can support their students’ mental health along with their own mental health
- How teachers can engage families in the classroom
- How administrators can master financial literacy mandates
These sessions will be led by current educators, as well as subject matter experts from EVERFI and its strategic partners including the Born This Way Foundation, BetterUp, Canva, PearDeck, and more. The ability to provide the conference at no cost to educators is made possible through the support of Ball Corporation, BetterHelp, Group 1001, HCA Healthcare, Intuit, Truth Initiative, and ZelleⓇ.
“We started the LearnOn Conference in response to the pandemic in 2020 as a way to provide teachers critical support and resources to navigate the changing learning environment,” said Jessica Barlett, senior vice president, K-12 Operations, EVERFI. “With EVERFI’s network of more than 25,000 schools, we are in a unique position to bring together so many educators and field experts who are passionate about whole-child learning and preparing students for the real world. It’s important to have conversations about the unique challenges our educators face in the 21st century, and we are proud to provide teachers and administrators with the tools to be successful in the upcoming school year.”
In addition to participating in breakout sessions, conference attendees will learn from more than 60 education experts, explore the latest research and resources related to real-world learning, and receive a certificate for four hours of professional development. Attendees will also hear from keynote speaker Joe “Mr. D” Dombrowski, a comedian and teacher, and musical guest singer-songwriter Nina Grae.
