With the Democratic convention days away, and the GOP confab immediately following, I wanted to let you all know that Education Week’s Campaign K-12 will be on the ground in Denver and in St. Paul, bringing you first-hand coverage.
We’ll be writing stories for our print and online versions of EdWeek, blogging here (of course!), and even experimenting with Twitter. We’ll be carrying around trendy backpacks, filled with the latest audio and video equipment (which we may or may not know how to use) as we strive to bring you not just stories, but the sights and sounds of the convention as well. Stay tuned here for all updates, starting Sunday evening.

Alyson Klein and Mark Walsh, who is pictured far right, will be reporting from St. Paul.
Will any of you be there? Are there any education-policy events we should be sure to catch? And furthermore, even if you’re not going, what should we be on the lookout for as we comb the convention halls for stories and blog items?
