InstructureCon 2023 is in full swing. Day two was jam-packed with memorable moments, uplifting keynotes, motivating professional development talks, and insightful breakout sessions exploring the possibilities for teaching and learning with technology.
To kick off the day, Joanna Fankhauser, Instructure's SVP of Business Operations, sat down with Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global, who encouraged the room to focus on wellness and self-care during her inspirational fireside chat.
Enthusiasm for technology-enhanced learning was felt far and wide, with artificial intelligence being the day's hot topic. Instructure officially announced their partnership with Khan Academy, integrating AI-powered student tutor and teaching assistant Khanmigo into Canvas LMS.
At Instructure, we believe that education is for everyone and remain committed to furthering this mission through our products and partnerships. This commitment was in full display during InstructureCon.
Throughout the day, educators, administrators, and edtech enthusiasts opened their minds to moments of learning, embracing innovative ideas and fostering collaborative discussions to improve education for everyone. The excitement for the day's keynote, sessions, and panel discussions was electric.
The Instructure Conference has been amazing. We are learning so much that will improve learning for all of our students. @djvuillaume @Canvas_by_Inst @SandburgHS @DSmithCSHS #INSTCon23 pic.twitter.com/em1qTKGxdG— Christine Borst (@SandburgPhysics) July 27, 2023
