Ed Tech Data Collection - National Data Points

As you may know, state educational technology directors are meeting next month in Washington to learn about all the new things happening with Title IID and the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) program. In preparation for the meeting, the US DOE is asking states and districts to provide feedback on the current and potential data collection points to help ensure the quality of data collection in educational technology.

A survey has been created to collect feedback. The survey is divided into four short sections that align with the goals of the EETT program with possible data elements and data collection methods for each of the goals. I urge you to complete this brief survey so that the US DOE is provided with sufficient information on possible data elements and data collection methods. The deadline for state and district submission is April 30, 3009. (Consider doing it now while you are thinking about it! It will take you less than 5 minutes.)
