Hello everyone!

The planning team has been busy working out the three themes for this year's conference, and we are happy to say we are ready to start accepting applications from schools who are interested in attending.

As in the past, we are looking for teams of 2-4 (4 preferred) from each school.

Deadline for signup is January 30th.

For more information, and to sign up your school's team, please visit our new site.

Looking forward to seeing you at this year's conference.

Jason and Matt

Thanks to everybody who helped make #beyondlaptops 2016 a success! We had a great weekend full of in-depth conversations about learning, as well as some fantastic evenings of good food and good fun!

One of the things that we are already discussing here at YIS is how we can change the tone of conversations with students to be more gender inclusive. This idea from Wes P has got us talking.

Interesting study that says hand written notes are better for long-term comprehension. I like how it mentions Reddit also.
