This publication is the result of 20 months of work by the members of the U.S. Department of Education's Educational Technology Expert Panel. From September 1998 to April 2000, the Panel met a total of five times to discuss its mandate (i.e., to evaluate educational programs and recommend to the Secretary of Education those programs that should be designated as exemplary or promising), create review criteria, establish a review process, and review programs. The report includes a look at the Panel process and the criteria by which submissions were judged. The following programs were recommended by the Panel and designated exemplary or promising by the Secretary of Education in 2000: (1) Maryland Virtual High School CoreModels Project; (2) Middle-school Mathematics through Applications Program (MMAP); (3) Modeling Instruction in High School Physics; (4) One Sky, Many Voices, a middle-school science program using real-time weather data; and (5) the WEB Project, a collaborative program to employ new technology to effect systemic reform in school systems throughout Vermont. Based on additional insights and knowledge gained from this undertaking, the report concludes with a section on further reflections by the Panel. (MES)
