Community Voting is Live for SXSW EDU 2024: We Hope You'll See Us There

...and by that we mean: Make our dreams come true & vote for the edTeam! Please with a cherry on top :)

What is SXSW EDU? Only the most iconic event where the most innovative minds in ed gather together to...basically, nerd out. And learn. And collaborate. And find renewed hope in knowing their lifework can make real change.

What is PanelPicker? Well, we'll C+P straight from the source: "PanelPicker is a session proposal platform that gives the SXSW community a significant voice in programming conference activities (presentations, panels, discussions, demonstrations, etc.) for the SXSW Conference and SXSW EDU. Prospective speakers submit their session ideas to PanelPicker, then the community, SXSW Advisory Board and SXSW staff choose the best proposals."

A Community of 1: Pushing Beyond Politics for School Choice

Description: Join us for a timely and thought-provoking conversation about taking school choice beyond political party lines and putting it in the hands and hearts of communities. We'll dive into how education pioneers are leading community education efforts to ensure equitable access to nontraditional education, while working with families to design solutions to systemic issues affecting learners with diverse needs. You’ll leave inspired by the kind of heart-centered, permissionless teaching transcending polarizing discourse to build resilient learning communities that endure long after the bell rings.

Question of the Week: What jobs are good for teachers leaving the profession?

I already forget the question, but here's what I'll tell you: The answer is NO! You don't have to abandon teaching and education altogether. And if wrapping your head around all that feels like a lot to take in, or you're just genuinely interested in learning more about nontraditional approaches to teaching and learning, we've got a webinar for that.

We're on a mission to empower education entrepreneurs, and one of the ways we're hitting that goal? Giving them their spot to shine.

What is the edUpreneur Directory? A searchable directory for education entrepreneurs to gain exposure and digital credibility, while becoming part of a vibrant community dedicated to nontraditional education. Think of it as your chance to reach out to families and learners locally or worldwide!

We’re on the verge of launching the edupreneur Directory and The Village, a member community for education entrepreneurs, tutors, and microschools - and we want to showcase and promote YOUR unique talents and services alongside other passionate educators who are revolutionizing teaching and learning.

We're not about diluting your services and driving your prices down, like a marketplace might, but rather highlighting innovative educators and ed-businesses across the country and serving as the go-to resource for anyone searching for non-traditional teaching services, ed-solutions, and learning communities.

That's why we created edTonomy's edUpreneur Directory >> Time to Shine, Love
