SXSWedu is thrilled to reveal an array of conference and festival programming! This exciting assortment of announcements includes the initial lineup of community-fueled sessions and workshops, submitted and selected via PanelPicker, in addition to eduFILM screenings, the LAUNCHedu Emcees, and the SXSWedu Playground.
