The Very Best Lineup
Maybe the thing Holly and I are most excited about are the keynote speakers and hands-on workshops.
This year, we’re thrilled to welcome Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton to share their work in the arts, children’s literature, and their own podcast. Educators hold a special place in their hearts and this is a session you have to see.
We’re also excited to have Laura Benanti, Danielle Coke, and Dr. Shaun Woodley offering featured sessions surrounding the power of creativity, using the arts for social justice, and inspired leadership.
As always, our hands-on workshops are the real stars of the conference. This year, we have a wide variety that address current educational topics and all grade levels. Some highlights include:
- making movement and dance a natural part of your classroom
- using visual thinking for focus
- integrating music with SEL
- and specific sessions for literacy, math, and science connections.
We Have a Theme: ReimaginED
This year, we added a theme to our conference event: reimaginED. Because let’s face it: we’ve had to reimagine just about everything in education. Holly was the mastermind behind this addition and I’m so glad she led the way with this. All of our sessions now have a central focus on how we can leverage arts integration and STEAM to reimagine the future of our profession.
Teacher Swag is Coming
Who doesn’t love getting swag at your conference events? It’s one of the things I’ve missed the most about online events this year. So this year we’re adding a Teacher Swag Store where you can get stickers, apparel, mugs, and more! And in our new VIP registration tier, you’ll get a voucher to apply to any item in the store.
