EWA’s 66th National Seminar: Examining Creativity, Innovation in Education and the Media

I’m at Stanford University for the next fews days for EWA”s 67th National Seminar – Creativity Counts: Innovation in Education and the Media. We have an exciting lineup of presenters, panels, workshops and debates on the hottest topics on the K-12 and higher education beats.

Today’s kickoff speaker is U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, followed by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman later in the day. Tonight we’ll have the West Coast premiere of veteran broadcast journalist John Merrow’s new film about the rebirth of New Orleans’ public schools. I’m particularly looking forward to hearing from some of the winners of EWA’s education reporting contest, and meeting the Stanford Knight Fellows who have spent the past academic year developing entrepreneurial media projects.

Don’t worry about missing out – I’ll be sharing guest posts by education journalists attending the seminar, and later we’ll add access to video and podcasts from the sessions. In the meantime, you can follow along via Twitter with the hashtag #ewa13.
