I’m traveling next week to a forum on technology and innovation in education with an impressive lineup of speakers and a great setting--Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. The meeting, called Breakthrough Learning in a Digital Age, is hosted by Google Inc., and organized by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, Common Sense Media, and the MacArthur Foundation.

It will cover issues related to the digital generation and today’s tech-driven culture, the need for innovative teaching strategies, and ideas for raising student achievement.

The eclectic list of speakers includes: Anthony S. Bryk, the president of The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching; Geoff Canada, president and CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone; Susan Gendron, Maine’s education commissioner; Martha J. Kanter, undersecretary at the U.S. Department of Education; and Gary E. Knell, president and CEO of the Sesame Workshop, among others.

You’ll be able to watch much of the forum by webcast, or check back for blog posts about the presentations and news from the forum website. You can also follow my coverage on the Digital Education blog and Twitter.
