Washington Education Technology Policy Summit
April 6-7, 2016
SETDA, in partnership with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) will host the Washington Education Technology Policy Summit. The summit brings together educational technology leaders and other education advocates in the nation’s Capitol to gain insight into education and technology issues that are in play in Congress and at the FCC, U.S. Department of Education and the White House.
The summit agenda features bipartisan speakers who focus on policy trends under consideration in Washington and often allow time for robust dialogue with you about the impact of these policy trends on the schools and districts in your state. Special attention in the agenda is always given to the current administration initiatives. For example, at past summits there have been indepth discussions about policies related to the ConnectED initiative and E-rate modernization, the prospects for ESEA re-authorization, and the status of other federal educational technology funding.
