- The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) announced a new ed-tech policy database on Tuesday, designed to keep track of developments on the state level across the U.S.
- The State Education Policy Center (SEPC) is set up to follow broadband, online assessment, curriculum and other topics that may be of interest to policymakers, researchers, investors, and educators.
- SETDA intends to expand upon its lists of topics going forward and will not assign positive or negative values to the developments it tracks.
From the article:
"... The State Education Policy Center, or SEPC, as SETDA is calling it, will focus initially on the development of policies and practices in three key areas: broadband Internet access; online assessment; and digital content. The database went live on Monday, in conjunction with SETDA's semiannual member meetings held in Washington, and contains information mostly collected through its members, who are generally state-level educational technology leaders. ..."
