Socratica might go to SXSW EDU…with your help!
SXSW (“South by Southwest” or just “SouthBy”) is a HUGE conference held every year in Austin, TX. You may be more familiar with the arts side of the conference, but did you know there’s an education component? It’s called SXSWEDU, attended by thousands of teachers and administrators.
Socratica has applied to give talks there in 2018 – but it really depends on our panel ideas getting “upvoted.” That’s where you come in!
You can register and vote for panels for free, no obligation. This is a way for the organizers to gauge interest. We’d love for you to show your support for Socratica, so we can share our channel and our experiences with thousands of educators.
Kim is proposing a Case Study of the pathways to becoming an online educator. She and two fellow EduTubers will be discussing their journeys from Scientist, to Teacher, to YouTuber. Her panel is here: Scientist-Teacher-YouTuber: Paths to Online Edu
Michael is proposing a Workshop about how to make higher quality educational videos. He’ll be running the workshop with two other EduTubers who make great looking videos without spending a ton of money. His panel is here: Taking Your Educational Videos to the Next Level
You can see our founders at SXSWEDU in 2018! Please register (free) & vote!
After you register, it’s easy to get lost in the website. You can click these links to go directly to our panels to vote for them! And please upvote other panels that look interesting to you. You don’t have to attend, but if you do, we’ll see you there!
Here are the instructions from SXSWEDU:
On Monday, August 7, the greater online community is invited to vote and share its input on your session idea through Friday, August 25. The community’s input will amount to 30% of the total score for your proposal. Your proposal will also be evaluated by the SXSW EDU Advisory Board (40%) and SXSW EDU staff (30%) during this time.
The community will have the opportunity to “Vote Up” or “Vote Down” on all session ideas (votes will be kept private) and add comments to each page. We encourage you to use this commenting feature to expand on your session idea, make notes of any updates or changes and even engage with the voting community.
Anyone with internet access can cast a single vote for as many proposals as they would like upon creating a PanelPicker account.
We really appreciate your helping to send us to this conference! It’s a great opportunity to meet other educators and let more people know about the work we do at Socratica. Every bit of awareness helps our channel stay in business. Hope we see you next year in Austin! THANK YOU!
