“NetTech” provides support in using technology


NetTech, the Northeast Regional Technology in Education Consortium, is a partnership designed to assist K-12 schools in planning, implementing, evaluating, and refining effective educational uses of technology. Led by the City University of New York (CUNY), the group lists Brown University, Ohio State University, and the University of Maryland among its partners. Resources on the NetTech web site include “Forum on Student Learning & Technology: Assessing the Outcomes,” a report on a 1998 NetTech forum on how best to measure technology’s impact on learning; “Leadership and the New Technologies,” a web page produced by NetTech partner Education Development Center that offers information on developing and implementing a technology plan, with an eye on emerging technologies; and “School Data Collection on the Web,” a Brown University report demonstrating how HTML forms and Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts are helping state education departments collect school data over the web.
