About The Event
The 5 Sigma Edu Conference is turning education conferences upside down! We can boldly tell you that this is like no other education conference you've been to. We seek to take the education conference beyond the presentation and to invite all participants to learn, iterate, and launch. We're excited to have Keynote Speakers Barbara Bray and Nick Provenzano this year as well as inspirational, and world-changing thinkers leading break-out sessions. Take a look at the other features that you will only find here!
TOUR ANASTASIS ACADEMY
Get a first hand view of the innovative learning that happens at Anastasis Academy. Our students will offer an inside look at learning free from assumptions. We've transformed the learning landscape including our approach to curriculum, teaching, assessment, learning experiences, and even the way we utilize our space. Tour our space, ask questions, meet our team, and see education re-imagined.

LEARN. ITERATE. LAUNCH.
So often we go to conferences to be inspired, perhaps to learn a new technique or a new piece of technology. 5-Sigma promises to go beyond inspiration. We want the same thing for you that we want for our students. The opportunity to learn, iterate (with others), and make plans to launch in your own educational space. There will be no lack of inspiration, conversation, and plans to transform your own learning landscape! Check out past conferences here.
THE NO LAST NAMES OR TITLES RULE
Why do we request no last names or titles? Because we all have inherently unique perspectives about the world, teaching, and learning. Yet, when we interact in our society (or education circles) these can get lost as we operate from the perspective that some people's ideas are more worthy or important. This isn't something we consciously do (or will even admit to). We tend to give more weight to people on a stage, those who are published, and people who hold titles of authority. The truth is, we all have something that only we can contribute to the discussion. We aren't sharing last names or titles at the 5 Sigma Edu Conference because, as we spend three days together in February, we want to interact away from the filters that we so often put in place. We want to create a level playing field where ideas can be shared freely and everyone is comfortable to network. The labels shouldn't own us. We teach this to our students at Anastasis Academy and live it daily. Yes, you could cheat. It is our hope that even for one day you can come and experience the great freedom that comes with this practice. Learning without labels. We hope that you'll see the freedom that students feel without the labels.
Adult learning excursions? What could be better than that?! At Anastasis Academy, we seek to help our students understand that learning happens everywhere, not just within the 4 walls of our school building. Our students venture out on learning excursions about once a week. We love that our students get to learn in context, from lots of different people and environments. Adults deserve excursions, too! We have reserved February 25th for adult learning excursions. This will be an opportunity to experience Colorado, to think outside the box, and to consider different ways of approaching learning.
