The five strategic priorities--(1) Develop a Strategic Research Agenda; (2) Raise Awareness and Visibility of the Field; (3) Make Tools for Creating and Experiencing New Media Broadly Available; (4) Empower Teachers with 21st Century Literacy Skills; and (5) Work as a Community--their implications and what it will take to achieve them are discussed.
