Together We Thrive: Creating Our Shared Future Through Education
Knowledge begins with wonder! Join us online or in person for the free, two-day Smithsonian National Education Summit! This year's theme is: “Together We Thrive: Creating Our Shared Future through Education,” acknowledging that given the right conditions and resources, all children can thrive.
PreK-12 educators, librarians, media specialists, and policymakers nationwide are invited to participate in sessions exploring:
Innovative lesson design for English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Visual Arts, and Civics
Methods to cultivate social-emotional learning, inquiry-based learning, and youth creativity
Insights from teachers and Smithsonian educators on instructional tools and resources to enhance learning
Participants will also have the opportunity to hear about key issues and engaging learning strategies from experts from the Smithsonian and our collaborators at PBS Learning Media, Harvard’s Project Zero, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the Library of Congress, the U.S. Department of Education, and many more.
All in-person sessions will be hosted at the Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture (8th Street, NW and G Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20001). Some sessions have capacity limits, so be sure to register today and tell a friend!
