What is the Natick Innovation & Learning Summit?

The 2016 Natick Innovation and Learning Summit (NILS) will host over 100 sessions facilitated by expert practitioners on the tools, resources and instructional practices that Natick educators have requested. All sessions are tagged by level and target audience to help educators choose the best sessions for their interest and level in order to deepen their professional practice and personalize learning for students. 

What is the Natick Wellness Conference?

The Natick Wellness Conference has been designed to nurture the interdisciplinary roles of educators in the adoption of physical activity as a learning tool. Learn from leading neuroscientists, educators and psychologists the best practices and evidence based research to creatively incorporate physical activity into school policy, and teaching practices to enhance student's ability to learn.
