The Educational Software Preview Guide (ESPG) Consortium recently announced the release of its “2005 Online Educational Software Preview Guide.” Now in its 22nd year, the guide is published by a consortium that represents organizations involved in evaluating educational software and other technology resources throughout North America. Hosted by the Fermilab Lederman Science Center, the 2005 version is meant to provide guidance for educators looking to integrate technology effectively into their classrooms and includes more than 800 educator-reviewed materials for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade classroom use. Educators interested in researching relevant software titles can search the guide by keyword, subject, grade level, mode of use, and hardware platform. Though the site contains information about certain software titles, its developers caution that it is not intended to serve as a “buying guide” and “has been developed solely as an aid to educators in locating programs they may want to preview.”
