This week Jennifer Chan & Exhibit Change are in Austin, Texas for the 4-Day SxSWedu conference.
This is a jam-packed week filled with some of the most energetic and innovative leaders from all aspects of the education system in North America. This week we’re looking forward to making new connections, exploring potential collaborations, and pushing the conversation of how to bring positive change through design thinking to the way we teach and learn.
Starting off the week strong, Jenn joined 3 other speakers yesterday on the panel “In the Trenches with K-12 Design Thinking.” Not only was it a great conversation about learning through failure and the challenges and opportunities of using design thinking, it brought to life many of the great relationships that have formed through the weekly #dtk12chat conversations.
Stay tuned for more updates from #SxSWedu as the week unfolds. Also follow Jennifer Chan on Twitter to see the action as it happens.
I am heading to ECOO later today and presenting tomorrow. While watching some of the twitter conversation. I am inspired from Audrey Watters work at #SXSWedu and figured I would take it upon myself to see where I could contribute some reality gaming to the conference.
Let’s see what happens and what I might learn from this experiment.
If you are around at ECOO tomorrow, come check out my panel with Andrew Campbell on “How Technology Can Break Down The Walls of School?”
