Panorama is Heading to Austin, Texas for SxSWedu!
We’re excited to announce that Panorama will be presenting at SxSWedu in Austin, Texas this March! Based on your vote and through SxSWedu’s judging process, both panels submitted by Panorama were accepted from a pool of over 1,000 of submissions. As one of the premier innovation and education events nationwide, our team is thrilled to meet with members of the SxSWedu community this year.
Presenting alongside Panorama at SxSWedu will be leaders from several innovative organizations, including Chris Gabrieli (Chairman) of Transforming Education, Andrew Frishman (Director of Program Development) of Big Picture Learning, Nick Rodriguez (K-12 Director) of the Education Delivery Institute, student representative Dawnya Johnson from The Intersection of Baltimore, among others.
“The opportunity to engage in this discussion with an eclectic mix of educators, activists, and entrepreneurs seems to be likely to result in productive friction that can catalyze innovative ideas and initiatives” says Andrew Frishman, who will be featured on the panel Raising their Hands: Empowering Student Voice. “If we hope to develop the next generation of adults capable of stepping into leadership roles in efforts to continue to improve our communities and our world, then we must offer them opportunities throughout their educational experiences to develop their own voice and ability to effectively communicate.”
Nick Rodriguez, who will moderate the Raising their Hands panel, adds, “In our field, it is shockingly easy for adults to debate the major issues facing our schools today while entirely ignoring the perspective of their ‘customers.’ That’s why I’m so excited that we get to have a conversation about this important topic, in a place where many decision-makers will be listening.”
