Congratulations to HISD Selection Specialist Dr. Valencia Hall for being chosen  to serve as a mentor at this year’s SXSW EDU® Conference & Festival on March 6.  Hall was selected from a pool of over 400 applicants from around the country.

As an experienced project-based learning (PBL) facilitator, Hall will represent and discuss HISD’s integration of technology to transform teaching and learning at the district, and how to make the transition from traditional classroom learning in a STEM course to PBL.

This year’s SXSW EDU® Conference & Festival will be held March 5-8 in Austin, Texas.

The conference is designed to cultivate and empower a community of engaged stakeholders to advance teaching and learning. Participants will have access to engaging sessions, immersive workshops, interactive learning experiences, film screenings, early-stage startups, business opportunities, and networking.

Prior to her conference appearance, Hall will be honored on Feb. 22 with the Excellence in Education Award from Texas Southern University’s College of Education.
