iSchool Initiative’s Escape the Conference Experience is designed to provide a highly interactive training session for students and teachers. This is an immersive learning experience where participants work in teams to explore various hands-on STEAM based innovation stations. Each station is designed to unlock the creative potential of participants while harnessing the skills needed for lifelong learning. The innovation stations highlight the 4Cs: Communication / Collaboration / Creativity / Critical Thinking

Through station-based learning, participants are empowered to leverage the 4C's and experience micro-leadership with different challenges designed for different skillsets
Showcase resources & strategies to engage students
Participants will interact with a variety of technologies, including AR, 3-D Printing, coding, and software applications that can be implemented into daily learning strategies
Build comradery across departments and teams
Break down social barriers with interconnected challenges that require effective communication and collaboration in a time-pressured environment, creating an unforgettable shared experience for all involved.
Wow! Our teachers' minds were blown away with this experience! We learned together using collaboration, creativity, communication, critically thinking and motivation in a way that we want our students to be learning in the classroom.

This was the best professional development we have had by far. Every teacher had a blast, every teacher is going to be able to use this in their classroom, and it overall is the most, dynamic, fun, and engaging PD I've ever been a part of as an educator.
