experiencedu kidsWe loved Podstock!

Superheroes. 80s big hair. 50s diner food. VW bus. Great learning. Awesome friends. Chocolate brownies. And the Thursday night vendor dance.

We loved all of it. But school looks different. Learning looks different. And an edtech conference seems a bit . . . redundant. We’re all using tech, right? This means that our summer conference needs to look different. So Podstock is no more.

But we’re super excited to start new traditions with new friends – melded together with our old Podstock family. We’re still going to be at the Hotel At Old Town in Wichita. (Some things are just too good to change!) And you’re still going to get the awesome ESSDACK feel with ESSDACK consultants leading the way.

experiencedu logoWelcome to experiencEDU!
July 17 – 19, 2019

It’s a different kind of conference for a different kind of learning.

School can, and should be, a place where we’re prepping kids with the knowledge & skills they’ll need for a future we 
can’t predict. The sad thing? We ‘re not always very good about actually doing that. 

We want to change that. 

So . . . experiencEDU is not gonna be sit and get.

Instead, at the experiencEDU ed conference, you’ll first experience learning as a student. You’ll spend time and space with experts for crystal clear, practical, and hands on strategy sessions that replicate that high-quality learning experience. And then, together with other educators, you’ll begin designing classrooms that will be difference makers for your kiddos.

Curious? We thought so. 

So head over to, learn more, and make plans to help us create some new memories. We’ll see you July 17-19, 2019 in Wichita!
