The Professional Learning Community for 21st Century Education Leaders

EdLeader21 is a national network of school and district leaders focused on integrating the 4Cs (critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity) into education.

How can my school or district
become a member?

“Besides the terrific tools and resources offered by EdLeader21, the greatest benefit of membership is working with the larger group to collaboratively strengthen and expand the impact of our work.”

Thanks to Our PLC for an Outstanding Annual Event

Thanks to Our PLC for an Outstanding Annual Event

Thanks to all 650 EdLeader21 PLC members who attended the 6th Annual Event in Denver at the end of September 2016 - our largest and most successful event to date. We are extremely grateful to Deb Delisle, for a powerful and inspiring keynote address, and to guest speaker Ron Berger, for sharing beautiful examples and stories of exemplary student work. The event could not have been accomplished without generous support from our sponsors: Amazon Education, Discovery Education, EF Tours, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. As always, our IGNITE presenters were outstanding, and breakout sessions energized us for the year to come.
