Doug Sovde Speaking at SXSWEdu 2020

October 23, 2019|By Dana Center Communications

Modernizing high school mathematics is something the Dana Center works on every day. We’re excited to share this passion with the audience at SXSWEdu 2020 this March 9-12 in Austin, Texas.

Selected form a record-breaking field of more than 1,700 proposal ideas, Doug Sovde’s session will explore the reasons why it is vital America rethinks high school mathematics (and what we’re already doing to help our students succeed).

“The good jobs today—those that lead toward upward mobility—aren’t the same as the jobs of 50 years ago. Or even ten years ago,” said Doug Sovde, Dana Center K-12 director. “It’s time to make high school math more useful for all students in pursuit of their highest aspirations.”

Sovde will join other speakers, including Jennifer Eberhardt, Yo-Yo Ma, Michael B. Horn, Bob Moesta, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Erica Green, at the annual conference. The four-day event offers compelling sessions, in-depth workshops, engaging learning experiences, mentorship, film screenings, future-focused competitions, an expo, networking opportunities, and so much more. See the full listing of 300+ SXSWEdu sessions.
