A MISSION OF PLAY:
-----------------

The Play With Purpose Conference's primary mission is to change the culture of professional development and the way in which educators experience and think of continuing education.

Along with this primary mission, we help educators improve their students' academic achievement by developing their cognitive abilities and important life skills that will lead to a lifetime of successes in the classroom, in the community and within their families.

Furthermore, The Play With Purpose Conference helps educators foster an environment that will help improve students' self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence, as well as to provide a venue to develop interpersonal skills such as communication, cooperation, teamwork and leadership.

Hello,

Why The Play With Purpose Conference? Because, other than parenting, your role as an educator is the most important in the world! You are creating tomorrow's great thinkers, problem-solvers and leaders.

Founded by a teacher, we very passionate about teacher education and professional development - you, your students and your career are worthy of our best efforts!

When I started this conference several years ago now, I had a few specific goals:

1.To change the culture of professional development through a dynamic, roll-up your sleeves, unique professional development opportunity for teachers
2.To change the way in which teachers experience and think of continuing education
3.To inspire teachers to use screen-free game play within their curriculum that meets state/core standards - breathing new life into their classrooms and their careers
4.To create a platform for curriculum development - developing, creating, collaborating and testing adaptations and modifications for use with varied student segments: large groups, small group, gifted, ELL/ESL, student leaders, Autistic spectrum, BD/LD, AV Impaired, ADD/ADHD, IEPs, etc.. Equally important is to make sure we get these adaptations/modifications in the hands of educators, not only at events such as The Play With Purpose Conference but also through other means such as working with the game companies to include these adaptations & modifications in their game instructions.
5.To make this opportunity available to teachers throughout the country

That's why after two AMAZING years at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair, The Play With Purpose Conference is hitting the road to bring educators across the country the unique experience and perspective of Play With Purpose  Cognitive Development Through Screen-Free Game Play.

Through our workshops and The Play With Purpose Conference, we are changing the culture of professional so be ready to roll up your sleeves and get ready for the most fun you have ever had earning continuing education credits!

This is a day you will not want to miss! We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at The Play With Purpose Conference!
