One of the key distinguishers
of the Big Picture Learning design, found in our network schools, is that students Leave to Learn
. We recognize that learning can (and should) happen anytime, anywhere. After all, real world learning is best accomplished in the real world. Thus, a central component of our own conference reflects that.
Much of the learning conducted at Big Bang happens outside of the conference itself through half-day Leaving to Learn sessions in which attendees learn through local community experiences. For instance, during Big Bang 2016 -- held in Orlando, Florida, attendees learned from Disney Imagineers, displayed their problem solving skills in a local Escape Room, travelled to the Kennedy Space Center, and more!
We are pleased to announce the 2017 slew of Leaving to Learn sessions - a list which will grow as we continue to confirm more St. Louis experiences. Space for each of these sessions is limited, and priority registration is reserved for attendees who have already registered for the conference at large. As selection for these sessions is now open, so -- if you haven't already -- we encourage you to register for Big Bang
now in order to secure the exciting excursion of your choice!
