10 key points addressed in the National Education Technology Plan
"All students and educators will have access to a robust and comprehensive infrastructure when and where they need it for learning."
Passive v. Active Use :silhouettes:
Instead of simply consuming media and other useless content, we need to strive to engage in using our technology in a way that empowers and teaches us.
High-Quality Digital Learning Content :star:
Schools and colleges need to ensure students have access to a variety of high-quality digital learning materials and resources to support their learning. The ability to curate and share digital learning content is an important component of a robust infrastructure for learning.
"Embed an understanding of technology-enabled education within the roles and responsibilities of education leaders at all levels and set state, regional, and local visions for technology in learning"
Allows for personalized learning and teaching. Students can be the leaders of their own education
Allows for input and feed back
Connectivity at School :!!:
Being able to connect efficiently to so many different resources
Teaching :pen: :
"Educators will be supported by technology that connects them to people, data, content, resources, expertise, and learning experiences that can empower and inspire them to provide
more effective teaching for all learners"
Preparing teachers to use technology to enhance the classroom (That's what we're learning! )
Protections for Student Data and Privacy :lock:
"These policies should include not only formal adoption processes for online educational services but also informal adoptions such as the downloading of an application to a mobile device and agreeing to clickwraps."
"At all levels, our education system will leverage the power of technology to measure what matters and use assessment data to improve learning."
Learning wouldnt be limited anymore. It would always be assessed and built on
"All learners will have engaging and empowering learning experiences in both formal and informal settings that prepare them to be active, creative, knowledgeable, and ethical participants in our globally connected society."
Budgeting and Funding for Technology :check:
"Three obvious examples are copy machines (and related supplies and services contracts), dedicated computer labs, and replacing commercially licensed textbooks with openly licensed educational resources."
