Discovered the Office of Educational Technology! Free publications, research databases, and more!

Short and sweet: Got “followed” on Twitter by someone following the Office of Ed.Tech, a site I didn’t know about.  I checked out some of the information available. As an example, Understanding the Implications of Online Learning for Educational Productivity is a January 2012 report:

A longitudinal study report titled Distance Education Courses for Public Elementary and Secondary School Students: 2009–10: First Look, published November, 2011,can be found here:

So glad I found out about this site! As a person who encourages doctoral students to look to NCES for studies in a variety of areas, I just learned that I can now point students interested in K-12 distance education data to NCES studies!

Visit the Office of Educational Technology (OET) blog site here:

Thank you, @WimerAlberto, both for following OET and then following me!

Happy virtual educating!!
