- Help Us Spread Self-Directed Learning
From the very first day our documentary on the Independent Project was released, it has generated worldwide interest from parents, students and teachers to spread the model.
We have formed a Facebook group to connect many of our passionate viewers.
Now, we want to help advance interest in self-directed learning by convening students, teachers, and parents to share ideas and strategies.
One of the biggest education conferences is SXSWedu in Austin, Texas. We have proposed a panel for next year’s conference to shine the spotlight on self-directed learning. Some of the esteemed participants include teenage authors and activists Adora Svitak and Nikhil Goyal as well as education blogger David Cutler. We hope to invite even more reformers to be part of the conversation, so stay tuned.
To make this panel a reality, we need your help. We need you to vote for our panel at the following link: SXSWedu panel. (You’ll need to create an account but the process is quick and you only need to vote once!)
Voting accounts for 30% of our final score so please help us show the organizers that there’s interest in this panel.
The panel will be recorded and shared online for free so even if you don’t plan on attending SXSWedu, you’ll still get to hear our presentations.
The voting page will also link you to inspiring talks by our panelists, so head over there and show your support.
