Help us get our EDU TTRPG talks at SXSW EDU!

Earlier this year, I was part of a group of awesome educators and presenters who brought two events EDU TTRPG events to SXSW EDU. We now have four proposals in for this year and need your help voting to get them approved AND to help get more educators interested in and informed about using TTRPGs in class!

In March 2023, I teamed up with Michael Low, Maryanne Cullinan, and Chris Hopper to go to SXSW EDU where we presented both a panel and a workshop focused on educational TTRPGs.

For 2024, we’re submitting four events between us! However, to get approved, we need YOUR help voting them in.

Based on the response that we recieved during and after our presentations last year, we know that events like these have a massive impact on educator interest in TTRPGs and with showcasing how truly beneficial TTRPGs can be in education and with students. If you can take a few moments to vote on the panels below, it would go a long way in helping to further our outreach on educational TTRPGs!
