I’ve been dying to attend the WNET Teaching & Learning gala since I first heard about it and checked out the rich agendas offered at this “Not Your Mother’s Ed Acronym Conference.” I still haven’t made it, but the next best thing this year has been the live blog coverage by Anthony Rebora, managing editor of Teacher Magazine. There was lots of content, lots of kids, lots of Notable Persons. Bobby McFerrin, Arne Duncan, and Queen Latifah. Now there’s a sandwich.
There was also much-needed celebration of teaching at a time when some leaders seem ready to throw up guillotines in schoolyards. Anthony backgrounds the annual conference and this year’s highlights in this post.
