  • National Educational Technology Plan
    Here you can actually sign up to participate in creating (or at least commenting on) the new national educational technology plan: "The U.S. Department of Education is developing a new National Educational Technology Plan to provide a vision for how information and communication technologies can help transform American education. The plan will provide a set of concrete goals that can inform state and local educational technology plans as well as inspire research, development, and innovation. A draft plan is expected in early 2010."
