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.
We hope you enjoyed today's panel discussion...
"The Immigration Crisis Crosses into the Classroom"
w/ our very own @GatorCitizen, #iCivicsEdNet @ESOL_SS_Teacher, Dennis Gonzalez of @CHCI,@mariaoxalvarez of #CommonSenseLatino!

Personalized learning indeed! Being part of an #SXSWEdu panel with @PhyllisLEAP, @ktsharp2 and @john_bailey was an exciting, mind-stretching way to brighten the morning. Here's my write-up as posted minutes ago on @LinkedIn https://t.co/GXIVsgLe7f

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.
Why do 70% of teachers say PD is very unsatisfactory? “It’s the way it’s delivered- one size fits all in an auditorium all day. That’s not how we’re expected teach.” Authentic voices from the field. Thank you @rosepink for moderating such an insightful panel. #SXSWEDU pic.twitter.com/nMmXS7xk4l

"I feel like professional learning is on the job practice of what you've learned in PD, trying to apply that, learning as you go. PD is one of those things you go to, completed it, check" - Mamphey with @rosepink of @LeadAndLearn/@HMHCo + Swartz + McClain #SXSWEDU | #EdSpace

“Data” gets an eye roll from teachers on @rosepink #SXSWEDU panel — we have access to data in the classroom every day, it doesn’t have to come to us through tech; sometime testing doesn’t produce an accurate picture; students aren’t just numbers #edchat

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.

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!
It was an honor to sit down to talk with @davidhogg111 at @SXSWEDU.
I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way... https://t.co/pGc8B3zcME

Please people, stop saying “I don’t need that” when handed a mic. You might not, but the hearing-disabled person across the room from you might. #sxswedu #leadersdontlead
