State Educational Technology Directors Association
The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is the principal association representing the technology leadership in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. This is SETDA's ninth annual report on select educational technology activities. This year's report includes details regarding state educational technology programs, the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) grant program for the federal fiscal year 2010 (FY10), and the EETT portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment (ARRA) Act of 2009. ARRA provided $650 million dollars for EETT, a significant increase in funds, which afforded the opportunity for states to scale up and develop robust, effective educational technology grant programs, and also increased statewide program evaluations. This report shares a broad scope of innovative educational activities that promote technology integration to help prepare students for the 21st century global economy. SETDA collected data through a variety of mechanisms: (1) detailed surveys of the states; (2) personal interviews with state technology directors and their staff; (3) analysis of education websites; and (4) review of public information. This report includes multiple examples of innovative, educational technology programs in states and districts that were funded by federal, state, local, and private sources and an analysis of the federal technology grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Education to state educational agencies through the EETT grant program for FY10 and EETT ARRA funds. Appended are: (1) Technology Infrastructure; (2) Data Systems and Interoperability Standards; (3) Content Standards and High-Quality Assessments; (4) Education Resource Repositories; (5) Professional Learning Communities and Communities of Practice; (6) Technology Coaches/Mentors; (7) High-Access, Technology-Rich Learning Environments; (8) Personalized Learning; (9) Online and Blended Learning; (10) Digital and Open Content; (11) Project-Based Collaborative Learning; (12) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); (13) Career and College Readiness Initiatives; and (14) Dropout Prevention/Credit Recovery. (Contains 3 tables, 6 figures, and 45 notes.)
