Personalized Learning Summit

Back by popular demand, Eden Prairie Schools is teaming up with area districts to pull off what might be the most EPIC adventure of the summer!! Superheroes from our district, Farmington, Edina, Westonka, Eastern Carver County and the Metro ECSU will come together to present on all things related to personalized learning. The second annual PERSONALIZED LEARNING SUMMIT will take place at CHANHASSEN HIGH SCHOOL on August 1st and 2nd. You won’t want to miss the featured keynote with GEORGE COUROUS as well as an opportunity to learn from other metro area teachers personalizing learning. Take a look at the website for more info. Register in Keep Certified by searching for Personalized Learning Summit. Registration will be paid for participants. We’d like to showcase the amazing work happening in EPS.
