Exploring State Education Policies

Oct 16, 2012

SETDA'S SEPC: We confess that the double acronym makes us a little tongue-tied--but we like to think of it as one of those puzzle boxes that hides something cool inside. Where would you go if you wanted to figure out the broadband policy of, say, the states of Michigan, Vermont and, oh, say, Tennessee? Or how about their policies on online assessment? Or even their policies on instructional materials? Here's the key to the puzzle box: the State Education Policy Center is a nicely organized database of state policies all about education and technology. It was created by the members of SETDA, the State Educational Technology Director's Association, the folks who genuinely make technology work in hundreds of school districts around the U.S. We don't suggest you say SETDA'S SEPC any number of times fast--but a few quick clicks through this database might unlock some valuable information about who's doing what.
