Big Ideas Fest convenes all education stakeholders in redesigning the future of education. ISKME's annual event brings together teachers, policy makers, researchers, eduprenuers, students, and funders who are championing the transformation of K-20 education.
Working across traditional silos in education, Big Ideas Fest engages participants from the ballroom stage to outdoor fire pits, from the hallways to the parking lot roof, and from face-to-face networking to inspiring rapid fire speakers, all infused with activities that inspire and activate new ideas. That's a promise!
The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), an independent non-profit research institute established in 2002, is a pioneer in knowledge sharing and educational innovation. Dedicated to the study, spread, and strategic use of knowledge management in education, ISKME helps schools, colleges, universities, and the organizations that support them expand their capacity to collect and share information, apply it to well-defined problems, and create open knowledge-driven environments focused on learning and success. In assisting the K-20 education sector, ISKME also helps philanthropic organizations and government agencies examine and improve their own and their grantees’ processes for continuous improvement, evaluation, and learning.
