This Web site gathers videos of government officials talking about IT. Although there isn’t much that’s directly education-related, a lot of the videos touch on topics that are floating around in education just as much as they are in government—how budget crunches affect IT, security concerns, the effect of Web 2.0 on daily activities, etc. I just finished listening to the Government Leaders’ IT Crystal Ball which talks about the future of IT, especially in light of the presidential election.
There aren’t a whole lot of videos on the site yet to watch, but if its extensive drop-down menu of topics is any indication of what peopel are planning to talk about, it’s probably worth checking back in a couple of weeks to see what else has been added.
The site did make me register in order to be able to watch some of the videos. It’s free, though, and only takes a minute.
