SETDA Launches New Website
Building the Capacity of Leaders to Improve Education through Technology
February 28, 2014 (Washington, D.C.) – SETDA, the principal membership association of U.S. state and territorial educational technology leaders, today announced the launch of the redesigned SETDA.org, another key step in the implementation of the association’s strategic plan.
SETDA.org offers resources to help state and national education leaders improve education through technology policy and practice. The redesigned website more clearly communicates the association’s work and priorities to the public and follows on the fall 2013 launch of an online professional learning community for members and partners, SETDA Connects.
Featured resources on the site highlight state educational technology leadership in:
- Advocating for equity of access to digital learning opportunities
- Helping educators manage the shift from traditional textbooks to digital content
- Managing the transition to online student assessment, and
- Ensuring that education data is used to advance instructional and policy information needs, while safeguarding student privacy
“Today’s launch marks the next milestone in realizing the goals of our strategic plan,” noted Doug Levin, executive director of SETDA. “Our new site educates leaders in the public and private sectors about the role of technology in a growing range of important state and federal education policy and practice issues. We’re committed to continuing the remarkable SETDA history of sharing best practices and collaborating across state lines to address both internal state priorities and national needs.”
Founded in 2001, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is the principal non-profit membership association representing U.S. state and territorial educational technology leaders. Our mission is to build and increase the capacity of state and national leaders to improve education through technology policy and practice. For more information, please visit: setda.org.
