Examining Education on IPTV

We’re in the education business this week on IPTV. We are putting together a series of programs surrounding the Iowa Education Summit.

The event is happening this week in Des Moines at Hy-Vee Hall.

Iowa Public Television is recording many of the speeches and breakout sessions. We have a crew assembling them together for a series of programs. Here’s the link to the entire rundown of speakers. We will have those archived on IPTV.org for you to watch again and re-tweet with the #IAEDSummit hashtag.

I am moderating a panel that will tape on Thursday. We will be airing our work on IPTV on August 2nd. I’m curious what you think about education in Iowa. How can we improve? How do we get past talking and get to doing? Was this summit a good use of time and resources?

We will be holding a studio discussion wit six guests: Governor Terry E. Branstad (R); Representative Cindy Winckler (D), Davenport, Education Appropriations Subcommittee; Clayton M. Jones, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockwell Collins, Inc.; Mary Wilcynski, principal Kennedy High School, Cedar Rapids; and Amy Prime, Newton Elementary School teacher; Gary Goldsmith, member Corning School Board.

What questions do want me to ask them? Please submit in the comments here and we’ll see what we can do. If you want to send me your response, drop a line to IPTVPaul@gmail.com.
