NetDayCompass.org ...Your Guide to Thousands of Ed Tech
is a free, easy-to-use index to thousands of
educational technology resources. Designed for
educators, parents, and community leaders, NetDayCompass
links are organized into five key areas: funding,
classroom support, technology planning, infrastructure,
and real stories-best practices.
||Real Research by Real People
NetDayCompass research experts review sites recommended by
K-12 schools, government agencies, media, universities, non-profit
organizations, industry, and trade associations. They also
provide direct assistance when educators submit questions to
the Research Desk. For example:
What are the "best" technology infused schools in the United States?
Can I visit any of these schools electronically?
-- Janet D.
The Research Desk Team can suggest some sites where you can get
different opinions as to the best technology-infused schools. Generally,
schools have a few teachers who shine rather than an entire school.
In some cases, the publicity might suggest success when in fact,
a student's experience might be quite different. In other words,
your best bet is to talk to students and parents at various schools
to determine their level of success in integrating technology...
codes clearly identify the type of organization responsible
for the content of each link listed on NetDayCompass.org. These
codes help educators screen and evaluate online content for
authenticity, applicability, authorship, bias, and usability.
Visitors are encouraged to rate resources and suggest new sites
through interactive features.
