The fourth annual eLearning Strategies Symposium (ESS 15) theme is "Our theme this year is Time, Place, Path, Pace"

Share your online learning expertise with California educators and policy makers at the fourth annual eLearning Strategies Symposium (ESS 15). The symposium will be held at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa on December 4th through the 5th, 2015. Having exceeded our expectations our first three years, we're looking for a variety of sessions, geared towards educators and administrators, about online and blended learning.

We're excited to announce that Project Tomorrow's Julie Evans will provide our opening Plenary on Friday, December 4th.

During her session, Julie will provide new insights into the students’ vision for the use of games, mobile devices and digital content within learning, and counter mythology with the authentic views of teachers and parents regarding technology use within instruction. Going beyond anecdotes and assumptions, her interactive and eye-opening presentation will provide leaders with new metrics for evaluating the pulse of eLearning in their school or district.
