SXSWedu 2018: Our recap of Austin's ed innovation extravaganza
We've rounded up all of our coverage of last week's show in one location for your convenience
With the beginning of March comes thoughts of spring — and, in education, SXSWedu. The education thought leadership and innovation gathering centered around Texas' Austin Convention Center seems a little bit bigger every year, so it can be difficult for even those able to make it to check out everything they wanted to see. Education Dive was on hand, however, checking out keynotes and panel sessions, in addition to speaking with administrators and other attendees.
