This is my first post from the World Innovation Summit for Education in Doha, Qatar.

As most of my readers are in Canada and the Northeast United States, much of my “live” blogging will be read hours after the events.

The time difference between Doha and the Eastern Time Zone is 8 hours. Most of the events I’m covering will occur while you are sleeping.

I’ll be filing one story each day for The Globe and Mail’s website. That will be the polished copy of the Canadian perspective of this conference.

The postings here will involve background information, interesting factoids, and commentary on the summit. Some of this information will be included in my daily filing for The Globe, some will not.

Feel free to post questions in the comments section, I’ll do my best to get the answers.
