The PanelPicker process provides a unique glimpse into what's trending throughout the education landscape. This year's submission window resulted in more than 1,300 proposals, on topics that span all stages of the learning life cycle, from early childhood development, through K-12 and higher education as well as continuing education and adult learning. Upon further review, the submissions suggest a thriving desire for international dialog.
Each PanelPicker proposal is thematically aligned with one of sixteen various tracks. Tracks are intended to provide a structure for PanelPicker voters and conference attendees to navigate through the content. Below is a breakdown of this year's submitted PanelPicker proposals by track:
