Our Summits

IEI Summits bring together instructional leaders, solution providers, and edtech investors to develop effective, sustainable solutions to real-world, right-now issues in K–12 public education.

Due to Covid-19, we transitioned our summits to regional, hybrid events with virtual and on-site attendees. The health and safety of our members and guests is crucial but work still needs to be done, even more now than ever.
