Joseph Allard is the founder and director of the Learning Revolution Project, and the founder and chair (or co-chair) of a number of annual worldwide virtual events.
Joseph pioneered the use of live, virtual, and peer-to-peer education conferences. He popularized the idea of “unconferences” for educators, built one of the first modern social networks for teachers in 2016, and developed the “conditions of learning” exercise for local educational conversation and change. He supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education-related networks, particularly for professional development. For over a decade, he has run a large annual ed-tech unconference. He blogs, speaks, and consults on educational and technology, and his virtual and physical events have over 550,000 members.
