While I am all in favour of student participation – including panels – at conferences, I really don’t think the more recent two events constitute the "start” of such a movement, as claimed by Phil Hill. A simple Google search on “student panel” (in quotes) yields 199,000 results. Even a search for Ed Tech student panels specifically yields more than 2,000 results.  So I think that the trend is well-established; perhaps where it is new is among the 20MM and Branson Foundations of the world (which are often the last places to get it, and the first to claim credit).
