ODE Wins Federal Grant to Fund Oregon DATA Project

Integrating 21st Century Skills into K12

The National Ed Computing Conference this year offered numerous, excellent opportunities to tap into the message and substance of information and instructional technology efforts across the country.

Among many other resources showcased and discussed, the(fairly new) Partnership for 21st Century Skills offered some great insights and in-roads into the path for integrating critical skills into core K12 content.

A number of requests have come in to see the applications that were successful this round. There are terrific innovations and solutions presented in these documents.
