SXSWedu 2016: Vote for NSTA’s Session Idea, The Next Generation of Science Teachers

SXSWedu graphic for 2016 panel picker sessionsVoting opens today for SXSWedu session proposals for the conference’s 2016 program, and NSTA needs your vote! To be selected for inclusion at SXSWedu, proposals must pass an extremely competitive crowd-sourced PanelPicker process.

The 2016 event marks the sixth anniversary of this highly interactive conference, which converges education’s most energetic and innovative leaders from all backgrounds of the teaching and learning landscape—including teachers, administrators, professors, and business and policy stakeholders—to discuss a number of key topics in education. We want to represent science teachers at the event and, to talk about the role that the next generation of science teachers will play in this fast-changing world.

What can you do to help? Please vote for our session proposal. Why does it work this way? SXSWedu crowd sources sessions to be sure the public has a chance to weigh in on the topics they’d most like to see covered. Public voting, in addition to the comments from the SXSWedu Advisory Board and staff, help to form the 2016 event.

Please help give science educators a voice in the discussion at SXSWedu by casting a vote for NSTA’s session, The Next Generation of Science Teachers. Public voting opens today, August 10, and closes September 4, so check out our session proposal now and cast your vote!

    We need one workshop in nyc on how to create lesson plans/units incorporating NGSS, not a workshop that describes the components of NGSS.
