  14. 14. Key Elements of the Plan
    • Five goals- for 21st Century model of learning
    • Recommendations- actions for states, districts,
    • federal government and other stakeholders
    • Grand Challenges- high risk/high gain research and
    • development addressing invention
  15. 15. The Five Goals Productivity Teaching Infrastructure Learning Assessment
  16. 16. Learning
    • Increase the opportunity for learning by enabling unprecedented access to high quality learning experiences for all students. Create new ways of understanding what types of learning experiences work - when, how and with whom?
  17. 17. Learning
    • Goal 1.0All learners will have engaging and empowering learning experiences both in and outside of school that prepare them to be active, creative, knowledgeable, and ethical participants in our globally networked society.
  18. 18. Assessment
    • We can measure what matters and provide closer to real time feedback with new technology enabled assessments that are embedded in classroom instruction. Students with parents and faculty can manage a persistent learning record, enabling continuous improvement at all levels.
  19. 19. Assessment Goal 2.0Our education system at all levels will leverage the power of technology to measure what matters and use assessment data for continuous improvement.
  20. 20. Teaching
    • Teachers need to be highly connected with data, experts, professional teams, and resources in order to provide personalized learning. Online environments can ensure that every student has access to effective teaching.
  21. 21. Teaching Goal 3: Professional educators will be supported individually and in teams by technology that connects them to data, content, resources, expertise, and learning experiences that can empower and inspire them to provide more effective teaching for all learners.
  22. 22. Infrastructure
    • Students and teachers need 24/7 access to the modern tools and resources they need to do their work.
    National Education Technology Plan
  23. 23. Infrastructure Goal 4.0: All students and educators will have access to a comprehensive infrastructure for learning when and where they need it.
  24. 24. Productivity
    • In order to get more students over a higher bar, we need to increase the efficiency of the system and maximize productivity.
  25. 25. Productivity Goal Goal 5.0Our education system at all levels will redesign processes and structures to take advantage of the power of technology to improve learning outcomes while making more efficient use of time, money, and staff.
  26. 26. Research and Development
  27. 27. Grand Challenges 1.0: Design and validate an integrated system that provides real-time access to learning experiences tuned to the levels of difficulty and assistance that optimize learning for all learners, and that incorporates self-improving features that enable it to become increasingly effective through interaction with learners. 2.0: Design and validate an integrated system for designing and implementing valid, reliable, and cost-effective assessments of complex aspects of 21st century expertise and competencies across academic disciplines. 3.0: Design and validate an integrated approach for capturing, aggregating, mining, and sharing content, student learning, and financial data cost-effectively for multiple purposes across many learning platforms and data systems in near real time. 4.0: Identify and validate design principles for efficient and effective online learning systems and combined online and offline learning systems that produce content expertise and competencies equal to or better than those produced by the best conventional instruction in half the time at half the cost.

  34. 34. Gaps prevent education from taking full advantage of broadband Gaps Issues Education Insufficient connectivity
    • School and classroom bandwidth demands to rise dramatically over the next few years
    • 16% of public community college campuses have high speed broadband v. 91% of research universities
    Limited data access & lack of transparency
    • Only 37% of teachers have electronic access to achievement data for their students
    • Data integration is one of the most challenging problems facing schools
    Limitations on online learning systems and content
    • Regulations inhibit online learning: teachers often cannot teach across state lines; course accreditation is often based on seat time, not outcomes
    • Limited supply of high quality online learning systems and digital content
    • Limited digital literacy skills among teachers and students
