*** NOTICE ***


The ERIC Clearinghouse on Information & Technology
web site is no longer in operation.


The United States Department of Education continues to offer the


ERIC Database




All ERIC Clearinghouses plus AskERIC will be closed permanently as of December 31, 2003.


In January 2004, the Department of Education will implement a reengineering plan for ERIC. The new ERIC mission continues the core function of providing a centralized bibliographic database of journal articles and other published and unpublished education materials. It enhances the database by adding free full text and electronic links to commercial sources and by making it easy to use and up to date.


From January 2004 until the new ERIC model for acquiring education literature is developed later in 2004, no new materials will be received and accepted for the database. However, the ERIC database will continue to grow, as thousands of documents selected by the ERIC clearinghouses throughout 2003 will be added. When the new model is ready later in 2004, the new ERIC contractor will communicate with publishers, education organizations, and other database contributors to add publications and materials released from January 2004 forward.

Feature Articles

The ERIC database includes recent literature on information literacy and distance education, the two areas of focus for this issue of Update.

Feature Articles in Next Issue

The next issue of Update, which will be published exclusively online in late December at ericit.org, will include original articles by the program directors of six of the best educational technology projects in the country. The U.S. Department of Education’s Educational Technology Expert Panel designated these projects as “exemplary” or “promising” last year based on the following criteria: (1) quality of the program, (2) educational significance, (3) evidence of effectiveness, and (4) usefulness to others.

In articles written exclusively for ERIC/IT’s Update, program directors share lessons learned. Authors will include Michael Simkins of the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project; Mary Ellen Verona of the Maryland Virtual High School CoreModels Project; Shelley Goldman of the Middle School Mathematics through Applications Program (MMAP); Jane Jackson of the Modeling Instruction in High School Physics project; Nancy Songer of the One Sky, Many Voices project, and Fern Tavalin of the WEB Project.
