ED Web Site Gets Overhaul

Thanks to ASCD's Twitter feed I got a tip this morning about the new Web site for the U.S. Department of Education.

There are some dramatic changes, but these kinds of redesigns often occur with a change in administration. One noticable new feature is the blog down the left side of the page, which looks like it might just be a rolling summary of press releases. There's also a rotating feature at the top and links to resources at the bottom and down the right column.

It might take a while to figure out how this redesign compares to the previous iteration of the site, and how easy it is to navigate, but it looks enticing enough. Send your review once you've had a chance to surf around the site.
