“I was looking at the themes for this conference, which is about being bold and evolving…you need to have that same mindset when it comes to protecting kids as we do around innovating technology.”
“Speaking for my team of four, we had a great time at SXedu. I think I’ve attended every SXedu since its inception and this time, I was blown away by the great balance of sessions and other content. You built a great mix of ed tech, ed research, current practice, social/political commentary and analysis, and inspiration. And I appreciated how the live commentary on your portal allowed for a kind of meeting ground for all the different strands. Really well done!"
“From school shootings to book bans and continued problems with inclusion and representation, 2022 was heavy. South by Southwest EDU, an education innovation component connected to the broader SXSW Festival, will face those issues head-on in conversations with experts covering pronoun usage in classrooms, Gen Z activism, and how we can reach more representation at schools. The focus of this year’s Conference is teaching truth, youth activism, and classroom inclusion of students, teachers, and parents.”
“Innovation and learning are at the core of the SXSW EDU Conference & Festival, coming to Austin next month. From March 7–10, the annual event for education professionals will offer a diverse array of sessions, in-depth workshops, mentoring opportunities, film screenings, art installations, performances and other learning experiences are sure to provoke discussion and inspire new ideas.”
