Thousands of teachers and others passionate about education and learning will be in Austin, TX at SXSWedu March 6-8. We’re excited to help welcome them to our hometown, as well as join in for the activities.
Along with my Dell Education teammates, I’ll be at SXSWedu where we’ll host two conversations. Students from Round Rock Independent School District will talk with us about new ways of learning during “Are students leaving us in the digital dust?” on Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 pm.
We’ll learn straight from students as they express how they are experiencing learning today and their ideas of how to approach learning for their needs – including the reality that we’re in the midst of a shift from print to digital in the way they are learning.
At Dell we believe that every child can learn and we’ll bring ideas of how to support this during the “Think Out of the Box Assistive Technologies” panel on Wednesday from 2-3 pm CST. Along with industry leaders from TeachTown, WeAreTeachers and Microsoft we’ll share practical and easy to implement ideas to reach students with special needs -- for teachers, parents and the full learning community.
Along with Dell Small Office, we’re also happy to participate in LAUNCHedu happening at SXSWedu. Based upon successful Accelerator programs at SXSW Interactive and SXSW Music, LAUNCHedu provides an exciting opportunity for promising entrepreneurs to pitch and receive support for their start-up education business concepts and products. The winners will be announced on Wednesday.
We’re expecting to listen and learn a lot from this crowd! I hope you will join us -- even from afar -- by using #sxswedu and our #domoreedu on Twitter. Our team will be keeping you updated on all of the activity via @DellEdu ... see you there!
