Everybody who’s anybody wants to attend Podstock. And why not? You’ll have a great time, you’re gonna get smarter, and you’ll leave Wichita with a ton of new friends. It’s gonna be great – so join the crowd and get ready to prepare your learners for their future.

Podstock 2018 is scheduled from July 18 to July 20, 2018 at the Hotel at Old Town Conference Center in Wichita, Kansas. To prepare our kids for a future that we can’t predict and to solve problems that we can’t anticipate, we need to give them all sorts of tools, strategies, and ideas.

This year’s theme focuses on how we can best do that:

  • Reflect
  • Respond
  • Redesign

That’s what Podstock 2018 is. The opportunity for us to look back and see where we’ve been. To use right now what is most effective. And to always be thinking about how to make it better.

It’s the new 3Rs. For this generation.

And we want and need you to be a part of the conversation! If you’re ready to jump in with both feet and get signed up, click the button.

Basic agenda

Wednesday’s events include our Keynote Kickoff with the always awesome Kevin Honeycutt, our new and improved three hour in-depth sessions in the afternoon, and the combined Moonlight Madness slash vendor reception – an extra time for mingling, learning, fun, and more than just a little food and drink. This year’s focus? Our 10th birthday, of course! Birthday cake. Probably some sort of cupcake decorating contest. And you know there’s going to be some prizes. (And be sure to bust over to Public at the Brickyard for the Moonlight Madness After Party!)

Podstock 2018 continues into Thursday with just-in-time one hour sessions in the AM, our new and improved three hour in-depth sessions in the PM, and the return of everyone’s favorite – our famous reception and dance kicking off in the evening.

But wait! There’s more. The all new and fabulous Redesign Rally focusing on next steps and revision kicks off Friday morning and wraps up at noon. This is going to be so cool. Trust us. You will not want to miss this!
