DOE Panel Seeks Outstanding Tech Ed Programs

The U.S. Education Department's Technology Expert Panel is requesting applications for "outstanding educational technology programs" for national recognition.

DOE has established the expert panel, co-chaired by Milton Chen of the George Lucas Educational Foundation, to evaluate educational programs and to recommend those programs that should be recognized nationally.

Technology programs could benefit from receiving national recognition in a number of ways, the sponsors said, including receiving heightened publicity, professional networking opportunities, a commendation from the secretary of Education and coverage in professional journals.

Guidelines and materials for submitting programs for review can be found at www.ed.gov/offices/OERI/ORAD/LTD/panel.html. The deadline for submission is Sept. 1.
