Celebration of Teaching & Learning

I know many of us, especially in the South, are on Spring break, but do find some time to check out two great education events this week:

  • The Celebration of Teaching and Learning — It’s been called the “World’s Fair of Educati,” hosted each year in NYC by WNET and Thirteen. Here’s the official description:

A premier professional development conference that brings together the world’s best thinkers, practitioners, and more than 10,000 educators to share their passion for teaching and learning. This two-day experience for educators happens March 16-17, 2012 at the Hilton New York in New York City.

  • The 2nd International Summit on the Teaching Profession — being hosted this year by U.S. Dept. of Education along with several other groups, including AFT and NBPTS will undoubtedly continue last year’s amazing discussions about how teachers are selected, prepared, supported, retained, compensated, and honored around the world.
