Alan November Invites You To Our Premier Event.

Education Conference 2017Join us this summer in Boston for the 18th annual BLC Education Conference 2018!

In Boston, along with educators from more than 25 countries, we´ll  share in the joy and adventure of exploring practical innovation in learning.  Led by Alan November, the BLC program is selected from among the very best educators, developers, and thinkers in the world.  Our social events, from our reception at the loft of Fabelevision (thank you Peter Reynolds) atop the Children’s Museum on famed Boston Harbor, to our informal meet-ups, to our Boston geocaching adventure will give you the much needed informal social time to deepen your conversations and add to your professional network.  You will return home renewed, globally networked, and ready to immediately apply successful practices.  Bring colleagues and take advantage of our team discounts.
