President Obama will talk about “Winning the Future Through Education” this afternoon at 3:15 pm ET. Watch the speech live.
One topic will be the proposal in his 2012 budget to create an Advanced Research Projects Agency for Education (ARPA-ED).
ARPA-ED will fund projects run by industry, universities, or other innovative organizations. Projects will be selected based on their potential to transform teaching and learning in ways that the Internet, GPS, and robotics have transformed commerce, travel, warfare, and the way we live our daily lives.
