I find it hard to keep track of when things are happening in the education world -- hearings, conferences, report releases, etc. -- and have yet to find the perfect solution (ie, a calendar that not only includes just the big events I’m interested in, but is customizable and updates automatically into Outlook or Google calendars).
I’m told that the EdWeek calendar is pretty good, and that seems to be true but there’s almost too much there (and no mention of Congress or USDE schedules, for this week at least, or of ASCD starting this weekend in Anaheim). As recently noted, AACTE claims to have a good list going for hearings and the like, which I appreciate. Though, again, no mention of the Secty’s speech on higher ed tomorrow and no events past this week. Someone recently told me about the Peter Li calendar (see here), which has an interesting set of events including ASCD this weekend but nothing in DC.
I guess there’s nothing perfect -- or is there? If you know of a better way to keep tabs on what’s happening and what’s coming up, let us know.
