Keynote Presentations



Leading, Learning and the Modern School

Chris Lehmann

Founding Principal of the Science Leadership Academy, Philadelphia

2013 Outstanding Leader of the Year, ISTE


In a time of great societal change, schools have had to work hard to re-imagine and re-envision the purpose of school. How can we create learning institutions where all members of the community, students, teachers, and administrators alike see themselves as active learners? How can we leverage all of the tools at our disposal to transform our schools into ever-evolving communities of practice that enable students to be powerfully engaged in their world today and prepared to be fully realized citizens of the world tomorrow?



Maine State of Learning

Erin Knight

Executive Director, Badge Alliance

Founder, Maine State of Learning


Maine State of Learning (MSOL) is a project fueled by public and private partnerships across the state of Maine to promote learning opportunities available to Maine learners, recognize their learning accomplishments through digital badges, and connect them to statewide proficiencies, career-pathways, and personal goals.


Leveraging the movement around open digital badges as a new way to recognize learning, as well as the initial proof of concept work through Chicago Summer of Learning and Cities of Learning, we are building a statewide system that celebrates and connects learning across all of the many regions in Maine, and creates new pathways for further education, career exploration and life goals for Mainers of all ages.

Join me to discuss this exciting new initiative and the opportunities for Maine, as well as the Open Badges and Cities of Learning work that it builds from.
