SxSW Education & Interactive

The nexus of technology and education shares much in common with another crossroad: technology and creativity. Intersections like these are what South by Southwest (SXSW) is all about.

So it was only appropriate that they are growing the education portion of the event with a special preconference: SXSWedu. The event mixes education professionals with those from leaders in business and policy who all share a keen interest in modernizing teaching and learning.

Continuing tradition, we're sending Thor Prichard, our intrepid reporter/representive/guinea pig, to collect research, identify trends, and gain more perspective on what's ahead. So if you're attending, or just interested in learning what comes from it, stay tuned to the Foundry Blog for reports from the field.
