On Friday, September 17th, 2021, as part of the Smithsonian’s 175th anniversary celebrations, the Office of the Under Secretary for Education hosted its inaugural annual Educator’s Day Conference!
Over 1,300 PreK-12 educators nationwide participated in sessions, exploring innovative interdisciplinary lesson design, opportunities to cultivate skill development across content areas, and insights into how the Smithsonian tools and resources can enhance learning. Participants had the chance to go behind-the-scenes to talk directly with experts, get a sneak peek into upcoming exhibitions, and learn about current research initiatives at the Smithsonian.
You can watch all of the archived sessions here via the Smithsonian Education YouTube page, or listed individually below for replay, and access related resources via the Smithsonian Learning Lab (https://learninglab.si.edu/q/ll-c/dBb10CoLJQYVkIcs).
