It’s less than a week until the Innovation In Education conference that we’re running with the Guardian, and it’s looking very exciting!

Speakers include Larry Rosenstock, CEO of High-tech High (not a Saturday morning cartoon but a seriously innovative cluster of schools in California); We Think author Charles Leadbeater; Timo Lankinen, Director General of the Finnish National Board of Education; and John Baumber, Director of Education for Kunskapsskolan UK  (the much-discussed ‘Swedish Model’).

The Harris Federation Student Commissioners will also be there, interviewing speakers and delegates.

On-line, the conference festivities begin on Wednesday, on Twitter! If you’re already on Twitter, follow InnovateEducate, and search for the official hashtag: #iie09.

If you aren’t on Twitter yet (and/or if the above sentence made no sense to you) this is a great time to start! A great website called Tech For Luddites explains how to get startedon Twitter here.
