Editorial: Are We Talking Only to Ourselves? Perhaps!

In her 2004 article "Technology and Teacher Education: Are We Talking to Ourselves?" Debra Sprague pointed out that in presenting an educational technology agenda there are two general audiences: those within the field of educational technology and those outside the field (read: external stakeholders). The role of these external stakeholders in framing the context of the educational technology agenda, particularly its funding, is likely to increase over the next several years. One of the issues raised in the Sprague article is whether we as educational technologists suitably engage the external stakeholders in meaningful dialogue over the issues that are important to us. In other words, how well does the educational technology community communicate with the external community over the value of its work?
