The Secretary of Education is soliciting comments on the importance of technology in the classroom. I strongly encourage everyone to go and post your thoughts. Unless you don't think we need technology in the classroom. If that is the case you should go here instead :)

You can find the survey at:

Here are the survey questions, in case you want to prepare your answers:

Secretary Spellings would like to hear your ideas on the integration of technology in education. Please take a moment to provide feedback on the following questions:

1. In what ways has technology improved the effectiveness of your classroom, school or district?

2. Based on your role (administrator, parent, teacher, student, entrepreneur, business leader), how have you used educational data to make better decisions or be more successful?

3. In what ways can technology help us prepare our children for global competition and reach our goals of eliminating achievement gaps and having all students read and do math on grade level by 2014?

4. What should be the federal government's role in supporting the use of technology in our educational system?
