SXSW Edu Expo 2015
Schools are not the only institutions in which learning takes place.

Non-formal education (NFE) is any organized educational activity that takes place outside the formal educational system. Usually it is flexible, learner-centered, contextualized and uses a participatory approach.NFE is differentiated from Formal Education and Informal Education.
During the SXSW Edu Expo I could know more about the programs offered in Texas. Different organizations (for profin and non profit) offering a bunch of interesting activities to support and complete children’s education (there were programs for all ages, from pre-school to college).
- support programs for children with special needs
- after school activities
- community events
- volunteer opportunities for schools and families
- technology to improve specific skills
A whole world where educators have a very important mission and where SCHOOLS, FAMILIES and COMMUNITY have to work together to add to this challenge.
