The Secretary laid out an impressive vision for using technology in education based on three attributes mobile accessibility, digital content and social networks.  The technology plan was published and made available for public comment at The Department of Education's website.  The Secretary talked about the importance of creating new open educational repositories that would allow instructors and learners to personalize and remix learning.   At the same time he called for research and experimentation that would use evidence based methods to weight the improvements in productivity and outcomes against the costs.  Secretary Duncan articulated a vision that demonstrated a good understanding of the ongoing transformation of education happening in the context of web 2.0.
