Separating Education Fads, Fact, & Fiction: What’s Hot, What Should Be Not @ Laura’s


There are a lot of fads in education. You may have heard about the promise of personalized learning, flipped classrooms, blended learning, grit, peer learning, mindset, self-directed learning, multiple intelligences, or competency based education. It can be hard to keep up and to know which trends are worth pushing for in school. Antonio Buehler will help identify which ones are worthy of your time, and which counter meaningful learning. This session is most appropriate for public, private or home schooled young people ages 10 and up, their guardians, teachers, school administrators, and school board members.


Antonio F. Buehler began his career as an Airborne Ranger qualified Engineer Officer in the US Army where he served tours in Kosovo and Iraq. He also worked on Wall Street as an investment banker, ran his own private equity fund, and taught middle school and high school. Outside of work Buehler founded the Peaceful Streets Project, served on the board of a child bereavement non-profit, volunteered at an orphanage in Bulgaria, coached high school football in Germany, and has personally mentored and tutored dozens of children.

Buehler graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point with a degree in Systems Engineering, from Stanford University with an MBA, and from Harvard University with a Master of Education. He is the founder of Abrome.
