SXSWedu 2015!

Mar 12, 2015

It’s that time of the year again when everyone gathers for the biggest edtech event – SXSWedu! SXSWedu Conference and Festival fosters innovation in learning by hosting a diverse and energetic community of stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds in education. Held from March 9-12 this year, I was able to attend a variety of events and even got to invite students from local Globaloria programs in Austin to display their games at the SXSWedu Playground! So fortunate that I was able to attend great keynotes and presentations, and attend some really good events and gatherings, such as the GoogleFiber party and the Edutopia gathering. Highlight of the event for me was getting to meet Guy Kawasaki (Chief Evangelist of Canva, formerly Apple) promote his new book “Art of the Start 2.0“. I highly recommend reading it. As always, my congratulations to Ron Reed (Executive Producer, SXSWedu) and his team for putting on a great event! Here are some tweets from my SXSWedu 2015 experience!

SXSW 2015: EdTechWomen

Mar 09, 2015

SXSWedu is an annual highlight for me. I love Austin. Globaloria has been active in Austin schools since 2009. We recently grew to many schools in Texas, and in 2014, we’ve established a small local team and office in Austin. Every year, I look forward to catching up with old friends and colleagues and meeting new acquaintances at SXSWedu. In recent years, I also participated in the EdTechWomen Networking Mixer, founded by my friends Sehreen and Margaret where I met so many wonderful comrades in educational technology, including Caroline Vander Ark and Carri Schneider of Getting Smart. Can’t wait for our next meetup!
