Policymakers, researchers, investors and educators now have a new way of keeping track of developments in policy affecting education technology. The State Educational Technology Directors Association announced a new online database called the State Education Policy Center.
The database will according to Education Week will “focus initially on the development of policies and practices in three key areas: broadband Internet access; online assessment; and digital content. The database went live on Monday, in conjunction with SETDA’s semiannual member meetings held in Washington, and contains information mostly collected through its members, who are generally state-level educational technology leaders.”
The site features a useful interactive map of the country which users can click on to view specific details of policy in the states. Clicking on California yields a wealth of info about policy on things like online testing, state demographics, library/media services, and plenty more. It even provides the user with contact information for California’s Director of Educational Technology, Jose Ortega.

of the database didn’t come cheap, but about $140,000 of the money that went into the project came from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation. Douglas Levin, SEPC’s executive director said that the site as it’s currently constructed is just a starting point and it won’t actually assign a positive or negative value to any policy. It will simply keep site visitors informed of policies, as opposed to a coalition like Digital Learning Now which clearly aims for beneficial changes to policy regarding educational technology.
