Lifting Our Gaze: Students Lead The Way

Education isn’t something done to students, it’s done with students. From October 28-29, 2021 join a diverse community of educators, experts, and practitioners as we embrace radical student leadership and empower students to design, plan, facilitate, and lead us in learning how to build more equitable schools.

With students at the helm, we can refine our roadmap for education through an unprecedented pandemic and its aftermath, chart our path to a new summit, and seize the chance to reimagine stronger schools where all learners experience:

  1. Instruction and assessment that challenge, engage, and empower learners
  2. Access to standards-based, content-rich, culturally affirming curriculum
  3. School culture that fosters positive identity, belonging, agency, and purpose
  4. Explicit anti-racist discussion, practice, and action


EL Education partners and participants beyond EL Education:

  • $450 per registrant-Early bird rate
  • $600 per registrant-Standard rate


Registration for #ELVS21 opens at 12:00 PM ET on August 9th, 2021. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements of student spotlights, sessions, affinity groups, networking opportunities, and more!

Host a Learning Lab at #ELVS21

We invite practitioners from the field to partner with students in your school community to design, plan, and facilitate a Learning Lab at the 2021 Virtual Summit where learning is student-led and adult-guided.  

This year will include two types of Learning Labs: pre-recorded Talks or Panels (30 min.) and Live sessions (60-90 min.). Please indicate your preference in your application. We do not guarantee the type of Learning Lab your application will be selected for and sessions will be assessed on the following criteria:  

  • Authentic collaboration
  • Compelling idea directly linked to one of the equity pillars listed above

EL Education is ready to support partners in reimagining and co-creating dynamic learning for participants. Support will include planning and facilitation workshops for all Virtual Summit Learning Lab presenters.

Proposals are due by August 31, 2021. You will be notified about the status of your proposal via email notification.
