A whole team of reporters, editors, Web producers, and photographers from Education Week and Digital Directions is off to the National Educational Computing Conference in Washington this week, so get ready for our full coverage.

Beginning Sunday we will bring you the NECC ’09 conference live from a number of different perspectives in stories, our Digital Education blog posts, daily e-newsletters, video coverage, and Twitter feeds.

We also are hosting an interactive roundtable discussion, “Doing More With Less,” on Tuesday June 30, at 11 a.m., in room 145B. Digital Directions‘ Executive Editor Kevin Bushweller will lead the discussion about how ed-tech leaders are using new and creative tactics to manage IT costs, save programs, and stay ahead of the budget crunch.

The discussion is a precursor to the Leadership Forum Digital Directions is hosting in September, Smart Ed-Tech Strategies for Tough Times. More information on the September event is available at our booth, # 2440, so stop by and chat with the DD staff. We’ll also be giving away prizes at the booth, including an iPod touch, 10 spots to the Leadership Forum, and 10 online-only subscriptions to the edweek.org site.

Our mission @ Digital Directions is to be the go-to site for K-12 ed- tech leaders by covering the most important trends and presenting solutions to the biggest challenges in educational technology today. A vital element in achieving this goal is to encourage and maintain a direct communication with our core constituents. Yes, you! We believe NECC ‘09 provides the perfect opportunity for us to connect with our audience and hear firsthand what we should be covering day in, day out. Send a tweet, leave a comment on the site or blog, or better still, stop by our booth (2440) and introduce yourself.

The NECC conference, sponsored by the International Society for Technology in Education, is sure to be eventful, with more than 13,000 attendees, hundreds of sessions, and demonstrations of the latest education innovations. While a number of workshops and field trips were cancelled, ISTE officials say the scheduling changes are normal for a large conference and that they don’t expect any big dropoff in attendance due to the economy.

Welcome to Washington. The Education Week Digital Directions team hopes to see you there.
