This year’s Bridge Conference was once again a great success! More than 400 participants took part in four plenary sessions emphasizing the importance of making learning personal.

The University of Washington’s HUB facility provided a light and energizing environment for two days of diving deep into the theme of making learning personal. Workshops ranged in topics from STEM/STEAM, to social emotional learning (SEL), to Common Core, to quality programming, and much more. The vast majority of attendees enjoyed the opening plenary of Dennis Littky as he invited students from some of his local Big Picture Learning schools to share about their journey from disengagement to engagement in school when they found Big Picture Learning.

The closing plenary speaker Belma Michael Johnson inspired the audience to recognize the importance of their work with young people in closing the achievement gap. He recruited participants to share how they take learning outside the four walls of a classroom, encouraging them to use as few words as possible as practice for communicating what we do with those not in our field.

We appreciate of those who joined us this year and shared your feedback with us—we are always trying to improve our conference. If you have any additional feedback about Bridge, please contact Shannon Robinson.
