Heading over to Austin? Start your night off right with the SXSWedu Opening Night Party on Monday, March 4th at 8:30 pm, hosted by GameDesk, the Pearson Foundation, and sponsored by yours truly. Sure, you've had quite a day of learning through sitting and listening--but we're all about learning through play. GameDesk is bringing it with wings, jumbo jenga, a Rube Goldberg machine, raffle prizes, a DJ and more! Join us at Peche, a speakeasy just five blocks from the conference, for an eclectic night of conversations, games, dancing, learning and libations. Fun is mandatory; sign up here.
