The Getting Smart team spent last week at iNACOL’s annual Blended and Online Learning Symposium. This year more than 3,500 educators and leaders gathered in San Antonio, Texas, to learn from and inspire one another.

The conference focused on two themes–Innovation For Equity and Redefining Student Success–but these themes were not just empty titles on the conference program.

There were presentations and conversations from individual breakout sessions to general session keynotes that reinforced these twin goals. In fact, “big picture” drivers of access and equity have inspired shifts to personalized learning in classrooms across the country.

Check out this Storify curated by the Getting Smart team. We think it’s the best way to get a sense of the spirit of #inacol16 and the passion of the educators and leaders who left the event inspired and committed to take what they learned back to their own schools and communities.
