Big-name keynotes and breakout sessions are a top draw at annual K-12 industry events.

It’s hard to argue with the economics of an estimated $2 billion industry. History shows that marquee names drive registrations and put butts in seats.

But what happens when that big speech is over? Is a singular message delivered under the bright lights of your opening general session enough to leave your members feeling fulfilled and ready to work? 

Or, are they in need of more?

In this use case, you’ll learn how your organization can use LaunchPad from RocketPD to turn your next K-12 industry keynote into an extended learning opportunity for members and attendees.

Drive member benefit and extend learning beyond live K-12 industry speeches and events.

Keynote speeches are a big draw for K-12 industry associations and professional organizations. But, while big-name talks inspire in the moment, members increasingly want more take-home value from their annual industry event experience.   

School districts use LaunchPad from RocketPD to offer extended learning opportunities as an additional member and/or attendee benefit to K-12 industry keynote events and speeches.

  • Short video-based courses from your keynote speaker and/or other industry experts provide an extended opportunities for self-paced learning and practical reinforcement of key concepts.
