Dear Colleagues,

Below is an announcement of a U. S. Department of Education Technology
Expert Panel call for applications for "outstanding educational technology
programs." Milton Chen, Executive Director of The George Lucas Educational
Foundation, is serving as a co-chair for this 18-member Panel.

An Invitation for Outstanding Educational Technology Programs to Gain
National Recognition!

The U.S. Department of Education has established a system of Expert Panels
to evaluate educational programs and recommend those programs that should
be recognized nationally as promising or exemplary. The Educational Technology Expert Panel is inviting technology programs to participate in the application process during Summer 1999. Deadline for online submission of the application of technology prog
rams to the Panel is September 1, 1999.

Please help the Panel disseminate information about this opportunity to
technology programs within your region or constituency area. We hope to
reach as wide an audience as possible in a short time span, so feel free to
publicize this invitation and circulate the announcement of submission
guidelines to as broad an audience as you can. Please consider posting
notice of this opportunity electronically via your website or listserv.
The Guidelines and Materials for Submitting Educational Technology Programs
for Review can be found online and downloaded at the Department of
Education's website, http://www.ed.gov/offices/OERI/ORAD/LTD/panel.html.
You may want to add this site to the list of hypertext links offered from
your website. The application is also available in hard copy by contacting
RMC Research by telephone or e-mail (see below).

Technology programs can benefit greatly from this national designation.
Information about programs designated as promising or exemplary will be
disseminated through the National Education Dissemination System and other
national, regional, and state school improvement systems, such as the
Regional Technology Education Consortia (R*TECs) and other systemic
initiatives. Other rewards include publicity and professional networking
opportunities, commendation by the Secretary of Education, potential
invitations to present at professional conferences and to other educational
audiences, and recognition in professional journals. Various funding
opportunities also may arise from a program's designation as exemplary or
promising We appreciate your assistance in making programs aware of this

If you have questions or need further information, please contact Diane
Aleem, the Technology Panel's Staff Coordinator in the Department of
Education, at 202-219-2148 or email her at diane_aleem@ed.gov. You may
