Education at South by Southwest (#sxswEDU)

Hosted by

The California Board of Education will not use test scores to rate public schools for the next year. Instead, it will continue to work on other, less tangible measures of success, such as student engagement and school climate. The change speaks to the question, what makes a good school? That’s also a central question at the Texas technology and entertainment festival South by Southwest, which starts this week with a gathering of educators and tech experts. How are they putting their heads together?
