The Playground is an interactive space that showcases new strategies to activate students’ learning and features a collaborative stage with session programming programming. The Playground is located in the SXSW EDU Expo in the Austin Convention Center.
The SXSW EDU Playground is comprised of three components:
- Playground displays: Curated collection of booth displays that allow leaders from various organizations and institutions to showcase and highlight learning approaches throughout the duration of the Playground. Playground displays are differentiated by our other exhibitors by their interactive and immersive activations that provide tangible resources and learning experiences for attendees to take home with them.
Organizations can apply for a display to demo their activities through the Playground application.
- Playground Hands On: Casual informal session that facilitates interactive and creative learning techniques within a 30-minute time slot with 1-2 speakers.
- Playground Talk: 30-minute session with 1-3 speakers that highlights discovery-based learning activities and ignites meaningful conversations with a dynamic audience Q+A.
