In 1995 the US Department of Education commissioned a series of white papers on various issues related to networking technologies for education. Those fourteen papers are now on the web, along with the proceedings of the conference of authors in November 1995. The papers address such topics as the funding of information infrastructure, the role of personal digital assistants (PDAs) in the classroom, and virtual educational communities, as well the concomitant curriculum reform that these advances will require. The papers make use of hypertext links to provide immediate access to data, other reports, relevant legislation, and related web resources. Abstracts of the papers are available, as well as information about the authors. Visitors to the site can leave feedback through a web form, and can read the feedback left by others.
