Call for Presenters

The EAST Initiative invites you to submit your proposals to participate in its 2017 Summer Seminar in Little Rock, AR. There are three different ways to get involved at Summer Seminar:

  1. Present a Session / Training
  2. Setup in the Playground - Provide facilitators an opportunity to interact with technology (hardware & software) they can use in their classrooms. Think of this like a hands-on mini maker fair or tinker space.
  3. Setup a Resource Table - Network with facilitators about ways to partner with your organization in a mutually beneficial capacity.

Selection Process: All proposals are reviewed on the basis of applicability, originality, and training needs

Submission Deadline: Friday, May 19th

Summer Seminar Sessions

Summer Seminar participants will be able to choose their own educational adventure using the Matrix! Participants will optimize their time and choose sessions relevant to the growth of their program. Each participant will build their schedule in advance by selecting from a variety of sessions including hands-on, presentation style, round table, and even interactive activities.

The playground is an opportunity for facilitators to get their hands on some of the technology and software that schools are using in their EAST classrooms, as well as time to visit with potential community partners. The best part is that you can earn professional development hours just by "hanging out" in the Playground! Check out the schedule of exhibitors and make plans to visit them in Little Rock!
