I am a member of Education Writers Association (everyone who writes for NLT could be too!) and their upcoming conference/seminar held at Stanford May 2-4th, Creativity Counts: Innovation in Education and the Media, seems especially relevant and timely re: the EdLab's work! What are your thoughts?
Here are some of the confirmed keynote speakers...
Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education
Thomas Friedman, The New York Times
James Heckman, University of Chicago
Sal Khan, Khan Academy
Claude Steele, Stanford University
And other speakers include Linda Darling-Hammond! Here is the full list.
