Team Squirrels is going south … South by Southwest, that is. We have the chance to present at SXSW EDU in 2019! Squirrels Director of Professional Development Becky Shiring, Program Director Emily Carle Hafer and Alpha Squirrel Travis Lape have all submitted proposals to present at this groundbreaking conference on the future of education.
But we need your help. Proposals to present are accepted if the public votes them in, now through Aug. 30, 2018. You can help Squirrels present at SXSW EDU by voting for both sessions below.
