Prezi Takes on the Creative Economy

Prezi has been a proud supporter of SXSWedu for many years now. In addition to sending our team to Austin, we have also hosted the LAUNCHedu showcase, and joined many of our ConnectED partners in town hall discussions.

 

Year-over-year, though, the highlight of the conference has been meeting so many exceptional educators who have reimagined their classrooms. 

Looking ahead to 2016, we are excited to share that we are not only renewing our commitment to SXSW, but also focusing on a singularly important issue on the mind of teachers around the country today: how do I best prepare my students for the creative economy?

At Prezi we believe that in order to fuel a dynamic, ideas-based economy for the 21st century, we must focus on teaching creativity. That is why we hope to convene a group of teachers and innovators for a problem-solver discussion at SXSW. If we can help students pursue their curiosity and become creators today, we can be more confident they will adapt to the needs of tomorrow.

Over the next few weeks, we invite you to share your thoughts on the challenge, and we look forward to seeing you in Austin in March 2016!
