Announcing the SOTF Leadership Track &
Pre-Conference: LSOTF
Since its inception in 2013, the Hawaii Educational Leadership Summit (HELS) has brought together school leadership teams to consider the conditions necessary to accelerate meaningful, student centered innovation that leads to more relevant learning experiences and more authentic expressions of knowledge.

In an effort to bring this work to as many leaders as possible and to serve as a catalyst for local school site transformation, the Hawaii Educational Leadership Summit will merge with the Leading Schools of the Future (LSOTF) conference to create a Leading Schools of the Future Track for school leadership teams at the Schools of the Future Conference.
LSOTF Pre-Conference
Wednesday, November 7th
School teams will explore how to co-create learner centered environments that intentionally integrate student and teacher voice.  
Facilitator & Featured Speaker
Dr. Katie Martin
Head of Partnerships- West at  AltSchool
Katie's work over the last 5 years has focused on partnerships with diverse districts to learn, research and inform how to create the conditions to support the evolving role of the educator, shift pedagogy to inspire deeper learning and leverage technology to ensure maximum impact on learners and their trajectory in life. She has also served as middle school English language arts teacher, instructional coach, and led the district new teacher mentoring program.

At the university, district, and school level Katie aspires to create experiences that empower all learners to develop knowledge, skills, and mindsets to thrive in a changing world.

As a leader, teacher, and speaker, Katie’s experience in research and practice continue to guide her belief that if we want to change how students learn, we must change how educators learn.

Thursday, November 8 & 9
The LSOTF track will include specific featured speakers and workshop sessions on November 8 and 9, during the Schools of the Future Conference that will allow pre-conference attendees to further build upon ideas/plans developed during the pre-conference. The sessions in the track will be open to pre-conference attendees, school leaders and aspiring education leaders. The track will culminate with a reflection session at the end of Day 2 for those who participated in the pre-conference. This will both provide an opportunity to debrief the experience, and to plan for next steps to keep our community connected.
