Ms. Gallagher Goes to Washington

Click this image to see the event web page.
Thanks to the Smarter Schools Project, I was invited to be part of an important briefing event at the U.S. Capitol today.  I'm honored to be one of the important voices for educators as policymakers and the press continue the conversation about the role of technology in our children's schools.  To be counted as a voice alongside Greg Toppo, Daisy Dyer Duerr, James Richardson, and Mickey Bryant has been both a humbling and thrilling experience.

If you were unable to attend this morning's event, check out #beyondpencils on Twitter to review the day.  Also, watch for video and blog posts to go up over the next days and weeks under that same hashtag.

A summary of my small contribution to this very important national conversation can be reviewed by watching the 2 minute video below -- which I made at Logan Airport while waiting for my flight to Washington D.C. on Thursday night.
