#PhysEdSummit Primer: How to Participate on May 9th
#PhysEdSummit 2020 is quickly approaching! With that in mind, the #PhysEdSummit team wants to make sure you are setup for success to participate and learn with this year’s summit. First, let’s get a quick FAQ out of the way:
What is the #PhysEdSummit?
It is a FREE online conference for #HealthEd & #PhysEd teachers on May 9 from 8am-2pm EDT. This year’s conference features 37 sessions from 54 presenters who teach in 8 different countries.
Why should I RSVP?
RSVPing gives you a first look at the full conference program on April 27.
The RSVP Form is closed. Can I still RSVP?
If you didn’t RSVP by April 27, you can check out the conference program on our website starting on May 1. You do not need to sign up to participate. The conference program can be found above!
How do I participate during the conference?
On May 9, come to this page and click on the conference program link above. Once on the conference program page, find the session you would like to attend and click on the link to access it. You must use Chrome or Firefox on your computer to view the sessions on May 9. Phones, tablets, Safari, and Internet Explorer will not work. Each Unhangout is limited to 100 participants. If a room is full, a second link will be added to the conference program.
I cannot make it on May 9th to watch all the sessions live. How do I view them later?
All of the sessions will be archived on the PHYSEDagogy YouTube Channel to be viewed at a later date.
What time will the #PhysEdSummit start in my timezone?
All session times listed are in Eastern Daylight Time (New York City). Feel free to use this time zone converter.
Do I get credit for PD Hours?
You need to check with your school or district. We will post a digital certificate that you can fill out and print/share after the event.
Now with that out of the way, let’s talk about the platform we are using to engage with the #PhysEdSummit. We are using a platform called Unhangout. You can visit Unhangout at this address to get an idea of what it is like: https://unhangout.media.mit.edu
Please watch this short tutorial that we have created to get a better idea of what to expect when using Unhangout
For further reading, the crew over at Unhangout have created a great Google Slide presentation that explains their platform more. You can access it HERE
That’s it! If you have any questions, please let us know and we look forward to learning with you on Saturday!
