The Best of #SXSWEDU 2019

Hero Sxswedu Twitter

We had such a great time in Austin, Texas, last week for SXSW EDU (March 4–7, 2019). There were so many different panels and sessions to catch, covering everything from the immigration crisis to how schools prepare students to be jobseekers.

Our Disrupting Inequality: Innovation for Equity panel on the first day of SXSW EDU was standing room only! Panelists included founding members of Innovation for Equity—a diverse group of African American leaders from across sectors.

On day two, HMH had two exciting panels. The first, Teachers in America: Voices from the Field, was an inspiring conversation between HMH’s Chief Learning officer, Rose Else-Mitchell, and three teachers: Brittany Mamphey, Rachel Swartz, and Georgette McClain.

In the afternoon, HMH and Netflix sat down with 5th grade teacher Larry Perez for Carmen Sandiego Returns for a New Generation to talk about bringing back Carmen Sandiego—to TV and the classroom.

HMH’s last session of SXSW EDU 2019 was the Featured Session: The Future of the K–12 Education Industry with our CEO, Jack Lynch. Watch the entire conversation.

Wednesday afternoon featured a popular talk about the gift of literacy with Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton.

The entire SXSW EDU experience left us feeling inspired—and with a lot of ideas on how we can continue to shape the future of education!
