Ah Schoology NEXT—the premier edtech conference of the year! I’ve had the pleasure of attending both the inaugural 2014 and the 2015 conference, and I must say they was nothing short of transformative.

And I'm not the only one. Just ask Cory Klinge, an Ed Tech Specialist in River Falls, Wisconsin. He called NEXT “a life changing event.”

So you don't want to wait to get your tickets, because our Early Bird sale ends tomorrow (Friday, April 15).

The Value of Schoology NEXT—As Told by the Schoology Community

Here’s what some NEXT attendees of years past had to say about the conference:

Joe Young, a 5th Grade Teacher and Tech Lead in Palo Alto Unified School District, said:

If you're looking for an immersive experience to learn an incredible edtech tool, deepen your understanding of that tool, connect with other users, and get inspiration for new ideas, Schoology's NEXT conference is the place.

Smita Kolhatkar, Educational Technology TOSA at Barron Park/Palo Alto Unified School District, raved:

The keynotes were absolutely fantastic. The new features revealed by the Schoology team were exciting and something to look forward to. The positive energy at the conference was infectious. 

Michael League, an Instructional Technology Specialist at Indian River School District, mentioned:

NEXT 2014 was an amazing experience—thought-provoking keynotes, interactive sessions, glimpses of future platform improvements, and the opportunity to network with amazing educators. 

Kellie Ady, a District Instructional Technology Coordinator at Cherry Creek School District, reflected:

I've been to many educational conferences over the years (some tech-focused, some not), but I have to say that Schoology's 2014 NEXT conference made me feel valued as an educator like no other conference I’ve attended.
