State Tech Directors Bring Together Information on Policies and Practice
The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) has created an online repository of information on state policies and practices with the goal of providing actional information to state leaders leading school reform and improvement efforts. The State Education Policy Center (SEPC) can be accessed at http://sepc.setda.org/ and contains information on three primary policy and practice areas: K-12 broadband, online student assessment (formative and summative), and instructional materials (with an emphasis on digital and open content).
The website also includes general state demographics information and details about state education technology organizations. This project, funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a valuable resoure for state leaders as they continue to focus on the effective implementation of technology resources in their state. SETDA and its members will continue to add policy updates as they occur, improving the coverage of state-level technology policy and practice over time. In addition to SEPC, SETDA's website also contains a number of reports and research covering state and federal policy and funding issues
