107: SXSW for Teachers??

SXSW Edu for Teachers

Imagine a festival that has great food, music, movies and designed for teachers.  What am I talking about?

Last week, during March 5-9th, 2017, Fred attended SXSWEdu that as you can tell, is for teachers.  Set in amazing Austin, TX, Fred, along with his colleague, attended SXSWEdu to not only check out the latest good things happening in the world of education but to also had a mission to see how it would be to send our faculty to go in the future.
