Opportunity, personalized.

Join us in Boise for our 5th annual summit. Personalizing learning for every student and ensuring each learner reaches their goals, and engaging in their own professional development takes passion, dedication,  and commitment.  Silverback Learning empowers educators and administrators to meet these challenges head-on and achieve greater student and educator growth.
Summit ’17 is a two-day conference full of workshops, roundtables, discussions,  and networking.  Expect hands-on Mileposts, Teacher Vitae,  and EdifyAsses training tailored to your needs, real-life use cases,  and opportunities to work side-by-side with qualified Silverback Learning leaders to maximize your product knowledge.

Conference passes include 2 full days of sessions, roundtables, panel discussions, and opportunities for 1-1 training in the Silverback Lab. Tuesday includes breakfast,  lunch and a cocktail reception with live music, an open bar,  and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Wednesday includes lunch and snacks. The conference ends mid-afternoon on Wednesday to make it easy to catch flights home. All hotels include breakfast. Dinner is on your own.
