The editors of several leading educational technology journals are collectively initiating a dialog to identify productive directions for research in the core content areas. An overview will be provided of the overall goals and objectives of this initiative. An update will be provided on events and activities since the SITE 2005 session on this topic, including outcomes of subsequent presentations and interdisciplinary discussions on this topic atAERA, NECC, NTLS VII, and other conferences and meetings. A description of planned future efforts, such as development of an "Exemplary Research Article" series, and development of a "platinum standard" research conducted in school settings, will be provided. The remaining time will be allocated for discussion and dialogue with the audience to secure input, feedback, and suggestions for enhancing the effectiveness of this effort in the future.
