SXSWedu's Panel Picker process helps ensure that each year's panels address the most pressing trends, issues, and innovations in ed-tech. This year we've teamed up with some incredible K-20 leaders & technology experts to enter nine learning science-focused session ideas into the Panel Picker for SXSWedu 2016. Our panel suggestions span everything from cultivating an environment that supports student-centered learning to exploring the future of micro-credentials and open educational technology.
