We Need YOUR Vote!
Your vote plays a huge role in helping our CEO Dr. Shital Vora bring Global Brigades’ mission to a larger audience and inspiring educators around the country to reimagine the future of learning at the 2022 SXSW EDU Conference.
SXSW EDU (pronounced South by Southwest E-D-U) is one of the most well known conferences in the US that celebrates innovation and learning within the education industry. During this four-day event, SXSW offers attendees the opportunity to engage in compelling sessions, in-depth workshops, mentorship, film screenings, future-focused competitions, an expo, networking opportunities, and so much more.
The SXSW EDU Conference & Festival is returning March 7-10, 2022 to Austin, Texas and Global Brigades’ CEO Dr. Shital Vora has been nominated for the event’s PanelPicker platform!
PanelPicker® is a digital, crowd-sourced platform that enables the community to propose session ideas for the SXSW EDU program. In Shital’s Future20 Session, she’ll highlight how college, high school, and middle school educators can easily implement virtual global learning curriculums in their classrooms.
