With the National Educational Computing Conference, or NECC, about a month and a half away, my inbox is currently being flooded with invitations from various ed. tech. public relations firms, hoping to garner some time to meet with their clients. And perhaps it is because of this sudden influx of requests that at least one PR group has decided to do something to stand out from the crowd. Instead of PR pitches, they’re writing rhyming couplets, inspired by NECC. I should say up front that this is in no way an endorsement, just something I’d like to share.

With Obama in the White House and a new administration on the Hill, Education is in an uproar with the passing of the new stimulus bill. The power packed line up launching in Washington, DC. Will have everyone talking-- even Arne! To see the latest innovations in the world of Ed Tech, Save room in your schedule to visit the KEH suite at NECC.

I have to say, the meter leaves something to be desired, but it definitely caught our attention, if only for its creativity.

But let’s hear from the poetry critics out there. What do you think? Should this poem be slammed or applauded?
