This is part of a one-time special event, those interested must attend in real time as a replay will not be available.

This virtual professional learning opportunity is powered by OVEE: a shared media viewing experience. Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and livestream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.

Through OVEE, filmmakers, educators, public media stations and other partners create online screenings that bring together fans, students, subject experts and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater. The OVEE chat enables them to discuss the topic, share resources, and ask questions of panelists and experts featured in the video.
