Transforming education through technology

We have a nice write up on the USDOE's National Educational Technology plan on our website with some great quotes from Dr. Jeri Nowakowski, President of the American College of Education.

Two Navy slogans come to mind that apply to implementing technology in schools:
  1. You can't push a rope
  2. The chain is only as strong as the weakest link

We will have to lead teachers into education technology with outstanding training and we will never get there until the worst technophobes are converted.
