Education reporters to convene April 24

education writers association

At this year’s annual conference of the Education Writers Association one session I’m particularly looking forward to is called Digital Age. Scheduled panelists include MIT’s Henry Jenkins, USC’s Mimi Ito, and the MacArthur Foundation’s Connie Yowell.
The Meet the Reporters session is always useful, and the Buskin Lecture is always informative. This year D.C. Public Schools’ Michelle Rhee will speak. She was impressive on John Merrow’s recent PBS Learning Matters report.
Closing ceremonies will include the winners of the 2007 National Awards for Education Reporting, including the Hechinger Grand Prize for distinguished education reporting.
