The American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting April 27th-May 1st San Francisco, CA
The next stop on the Dedoose Tour 2013 is the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting! The Dedoose team will be heading to San Francisco Union Square this weekend to meet and share Dedoose with America’s leaders in education.
About the Conference
This year’s AERA conference theme is Education and Poverty: Theory, Research, Policy and Praxis. Educators and researchers will be coming together from all over the country to have candid discussions on important issues surrounding the relationship between education and the many forms of poverty (monetary poverty vs. intellectual poverty, for example). To help facilitate these discussions, the organizers of the conference have come up with fun, innovative ways for participants to get involved. These include the ever-popular TEDx format of conversing and short, concise Ignite presentations, as well as the Association’s Inaugural Film Festival featuring contemporary films related to key issues in education.
Dedoose at the Conference
Not only will we be hosting our usual (and awesome) booth in the exhibit hall, but we will also be sponsoring one of the most fun parts of the conference: THE PHOTO BOOTH of Edutopia Social! This event will be on the second-to-last evening of the conference, April 29th, from 6-9pm, at Johnny Foley’s Irish Pub and Restaurant. It will be a great opportunity for conference attendees to mingle and get to know each other in a relaxed setting.
What better way to get acquainted with fellow educational researchers but through a fun photobooth complete with the Dedoose moose?! Needless to say, we are very excited for the Dedoose moose photo booth. We hope some of you who are attending the conference will stop by and snap a photo! The event is free to AERA conference attendees- RSVP here before spots run out!
To our users in the area…
We already know of two stellar Dedoosers who will be at the conference: Sara Goldrick-Rab and Maneka Brooks! Look out for their profiles on our blog in the very near future. To anyone else in the area, we want to meet you too! If you’re going to the conference, find us in the exhibit hall during exhibition hours and at the Edutopia Social mentioned above. Stop by our booth to snap a photo with the Dedoose Moose. And don’t forget to grab a tote bag so you can Dedoose, Reuse, Recycle! If you’re simply in the San Francisco area near Union Square, email us at [email protected] so that we can set up a time for a meet and greet. We’d love to hear all about your research and your experiences so far with Dedoose.
