The topic I'd like to see represented in a keynote at ISTE 2010 is...

Standing on the shoulders of giants

Educational computing used to be rooted in powerful ideas about learning and traditions of progressive education. Isn't it high-time that the ISTE conference situates edtech in a larger context of powerful ideas, social justice and progress?

NECC has featured lots of schtick for keynotes, but never a Charlie-Rose or Meet the Press-style keynote with smart folks having a serious discussion.

It's also worth noting that Seymour Papert, the father of the field, never keynoted NECC.

        have you ever Papert speak? His ideas are best delivered in print. I'd love to see Charlie Rose talk about some of these topics.
