The SXSW EDU Conference & Festival cultivates and empowers a community of engaged stakeholders to advance teaching and learning. The annual four-day event will celebrate it's 10th year this March.

Now a decade into developing SXSW EDU into a global learning platform, I continue to be inspired by the power of community to create change. From systems of schooling to the personalization of learning, we have seen the field adapt to an evolving landscape of connected classrooms and tech-enabled learning. At the heart of what we do is human connection, which throughout SXSW EDU’s journey has remained the most important component of advancing teaching and learning.
–Greg Rosenbaum, SXSW EDU General Manager
