There's tremendous value, both professionally and personally, in attending an education conference. Conferences offer you opportunities for continued learning, a fresh perspective, insights into new techniques and tools, new connections and so much more! That said, one of the biggest factors preventing education professionals from taking part in conference events is the cost associated with attending. SXSWedu has worked hard to reduce and eliminate financial barriers for teachers and education professionals wishing to attend the March event. So here's the inside scoop on how to attend SXSWedu on a budget!
Each year SXSWedu relies on you, the passionate education community, to create session ideas for the upcoming event. PanelPicker, the official crowdsourcing platform for session programming, allows you to enter for a chance to have your innovative session idea selected, as well as vote on all submissions to help shape SXSWedu 2016. This is truly your event and now is the time to enter for a chance to speak!
In support of PanelPicker, the SXSWedu staff is hitting the road on a community meet up tour this July. These meet ups will take place in various cities and in partnership with local organizations.
