  • Marge Scherer, Editor in Chief of ASCD's Educational Leadership magazine. Marge will talk about this month's issue focused on teaching social responsibility to meet the challenges of 21st-century issues.
  • Adam Fletcher, advocate for and author of Meaningful Student Involvement. Adam will address how student engagement can improve schools and communities in meaningful and tangible ways.
  • Nupur Dogra, high school senior at Iroquois Ridge High School in Ontario, Canada. Nupur will share her insights about the importance of student voice on her own high school experience.
