We are looking forward to spending time in sunny San Diego, California, on April 8–10, 2019, for the 10th Annual ASU GSV Summit! This summit provides an exciting opportunity to gather with education and tech leaders to drive dialogue and action around elevating learning outcomes through innovation.
A Focus on Equity
HMH CEO Jack Lynch will moderate a vital discussion on equity in the K–12 space. And, following the session on Tuesday, attendees are invited to join the panelists at an open house reception to continue this important conversation.
Center Stage: Leadership & Equity—Creating Change
Tuesday, April 9, 2–2:40 PM
Seaport Ballroom F, Manchester Grand Hyatt
Today in a classroom in one of our nation’s top 100 school districts, 10 out of 30 students live in poverty. Three out of 30 live in extreme poverty. One will be homeless and seven will have experienced abuse and trauma in their life. And the schools in the neighborhoods in which these students live receive $1,800 less per student in funding than their better-off contemporaries. Still, giving these students equal funding does not begin to compensate for the unique set of challenges poverty imposes upon them, nor does it give them the additional support they require to succeed in the classroom and beyond. This conversation, featuring some of our nation’s leading voices in education, will explore the policies and practices required to create a system that is equal, equitable, and just for all students.
- Alberto Carvalho, Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools
- Lisa Herring, Superintendent of Birmingham City Schools
- Henry Hipps, deputy director on the K–12 Education team for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
- Jack Lynch, CEO of HMH (moderator)

Purposeful Technology in the Classroom
On the first day of the summit, HMH Chief Learning Officer Rose Else-Mitchell will join a discussion on voice computing in the classroom.
Voice Computing: The New Frontier in Learning
Monday, April 8, 2:45–3:25 PM
Harbor A, Manchester Grand Hyatt
Voice-enabled smart speakers are expected to reach 55 percent of U.S. households by the year 2022 with over 175 million units in the country. The global opportunity is enormous. Education would seem to be the “killer app” to drive engagement. These experts will discuss this emerging opportunity, the challenges of product discovery, and the question of whether it is a new product category or a feature.
