The annual South by Southwest Education conference in this capital city attracts hordes of educators, education technology companies and innovators. Each day this week, presenters pitched new gadgets, apps and technology that they said would revolutionize teaching and learning. Also, several presentations featured educators touting non-traditional school models and redesigned school structures and classrooms. Here are a few of those models.
- A school with coding in every class
- The ‘video game school.’
- An online blended and flipped high school
- School of the future? A mobile classroom for at-risk students
