Kelli Brown, Community Relations Manager and Amy Burns Innovation Partner are at SXSW EDU all week long. Instead of boring blog posts we wanted to invite you to experience SXSWEdu with us. Throughout the week we will be sharing ours and some of our new friends reflections from events and sessions, and also take you directly into the conversations that are going on throughout the conference. The moment to moment updates will be happening on twitter, but stay connected to our news feed to get more in-depth content. We are excited to share out learning with you!
This year the opening keynote was a performance art piece called Stories of Schooling & Getting Schooled. In collaboration with storytelling phenomenon The Moth, Stories of Schooling and Getting Schooled featured four teachers telling true stories from their lives—journeys taken inside the classroom and outside of it. For this session, through story telling teachers give voice to their lives inside and outside of the classroom, to share stories of triumph and transformation. In exploring this intersection of teacher identity, The Moth hoped to inspire listeners to find and share their own stories, through launching a week of learning and connection at SXSW EDU.
After the event I sat down with a new friend Kay Gallager, from Westat Communications in Washington, D.C. to reflect
on the presentation. Listen to Kay's reflection below.
