Elisa Villanueva Beard and Carlos Moreno

The rapidly evolving education landscape took center stage in March at SXSW EDU’s first-ever entirely digital event. The closing day featured a powerful conversation between Teach For America CEO Elisa Villanueva Beard and Big Picture Learning Co-Executive Director Carlos Moreno, focusing on the leadership needed to reinvent teaching and learning for the future.

Elisa and Carlos tackled questions like: How can we develop the next generation of diverse, equity-oriented leaders in the field? What should classrooms of the future look like? How can we move away from a one-size-fits-all model and meet every student where they are, build on their unique aspirations and strengths, and meet their unmet needs?
