It’s not often (ever?) that you see a roomful of school district superintendents giggling and taking group selfies. But there they were in the East Room of the White House yesterday, waiting for President Obama to address them about ConnectED  and the #Futureready pledge. It was a special morning for all involved, which included Tech&Learning advisors Kecia Ray, Steven Baule and Ben Grey, whose district produced this impressive video presented during the proceedings. The message—that Internet access and its attendant technologies are essential for every student—is not a new one for Tech&Learning readers. That the message was coming with the weight from the very top—a hotspot in every pot!—was both confirming and inspiring. Be sure that we will be covering this initiative closely. And for the record, I took a selfie too! —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
