Supporting Fluid Learning
to submit your Call for Speakers proposal. More information will be available soon.
What does it mean to be FLUID? – “capable of flowing and easily changing shape”
What does in mean to be ADAPTABLE? – “you are willing to change in order to suit different conditions”
What does it mean to be FLEXIBLE? – “means you can adapt easily, if you are resilient you are able to withstand and recovery quickly from unexpected conditions”
In the midst of our world’s changes we have all accepted that we work, learn and engage differently. We have found new ways to achieve our missions and goals. We have become fluid, adaptable and hopefully flexible. A4LE consists of every aspect of the educational community to drive an understanding of how spaces can influence the best learning outcomes. Every person that touches the student matters whether you are a teacher in the space, an administrator guiding your community, an architect developing the overall building, a designer programming the use of each environment, an engineer making sure the best air quality is considered, a manufacturer developing products to support each one of these resources or a vendor helping to find solutions from all of your experience and expertise – you matter!
We invite you to become involved, to find a passion for driving change that supports equity in each community. Consider the challenges we have all faced and the ways to pull together lessons learned and make our schools even better for our students and our future! Become a member, get involved, join our mid-year program and our spring conference…we are excited to have each and everyone of you!! We hope we can inspire, enlight and support you as we move forward. Stay safe and see you soon!!
