Hey there everyone, Thanks again for inviting me on the show. I had so much fun and learned so much! I wanted to write you with a quick follow up to one of the topics we talked about on this show. We talked about how the National Ed Tech Plan is currently presented primarily in text as a .PDF and how to model Universal Design for Learning (and model the other content in the plan) it could really have embedded audio, video, comics, other visuals, more charts, graphic, manipulatives, etc. In the podcast I suggested we, the ed tech community, as a whole could, possibly, help provide this media. As luck would have it, I actually got to meet Karen Cator (Director of the Office of Educational Technology – http://www2.ed.gov/news/staff/bios/cator.html) recently and I mentioned the idea of having a “National Ed Tech Plan” wiki, sort of like we talked about in this episode, where the ed tech community could post content they create or have create or have created with students that represents the content within the National Ed Tech Plan. I think she seemed to dig the idea! I have my fingers crossed but I think that would be a huge opportunity to a) mobilize and engage the entire ed tech community b) represent and shape a collaborative vision and c) model best practices. I’ll keep you posted if I hear anything else on it. Thanks again and please, please, please keep up the good work!
Chris
