Designing for Difference: Provoke Student Voice, Agency and Deeper Learning is the theme of IFL's 2017 National Conference. Designing for difference begins with knowing each student well, understanding and honoring the varied experiences each student brings to the classroom. This conference will engage participants in highly interactive design thinking activities to address questions about how to create powerful learning experiences for students.

The theme of the 2017 IFL National Conference is Designing for Difference; Provoke Student Voice, Agency and Deeper Learning.  To bring powerful learning to today’s diverse students and allow them to shape their learning and lives, we need to be student centered, which means making sure students have voice and agency in their education.  It also means that to solve the equity dilemma, we need to make deeper learning available to all students, including children of color, English Learners, children with disabilities, and children of poverty.

Carefully designing what and how we teach will have a significant impact on every student’s access to powerful learning. Designing for difference begins with knowing each student well, understanding and honoring the varied experiences each student brings to the classroom.

This conference will engage participants in highly interactive design thinking activities to address questions about how to create powerful learning experiences for students.
