The 5Sigma Edu Conference is a place to learn with world-changing thinkers and innovators within the education community.
5 Sigma is a declaration of discovery. In science, it is used as a measure of confidence in a result. At Anastasis Academy, we are in a continual process of discovery. We call our education conference "5 Sigma" because that is what we hope for - declarations of discovery.
Please join us February 21-22, 2020 as we gather at Anastasis Academy to reignite passion and imagination with this two-day gathering of innovative educators. 5 Sigma goes beyond the typical how-to sessions; we host conversations where educators come together to learn, iterate, and launch.
Your experience will include opportunities to:
observe multi-level inquiry classrooms in action
learn more about the inquiry model;
discover and review alternative assessment practices;
examine methods of meeting the needs of diverse learners;
hear about some of the challenges of transforming education;
tour and study student agency in an open learning environment;
discuss online learning tools that will transform the way you think about using technology in the classroom;
explore your inner artist and storyteller;
learn from master mentors, and much more!
5 Sigma is like no other conference that you've ever attended!
**New this year!**
