Our Challenge “The challenge for our education system is to leverage the learning sciences and modern technology to create engaging, relevant, and personalized learning experiences for all learners that mirror students’ daily lives and the reality of their futures” (Shimabukuro, 2010).
National Educational Technology Plan 2010: “A model of learning powered by technology.” Learning: Engage and Empower Assessment: Measure What Matters Teaching: Prepare and Connect Infrastructure: Access and Enable Productivity: Redesign and Transform http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/os/technology/plan/2004/site/edlite-default.html
New Recommendations of the NETP 2010 Adequate broadband and wireless access inside and outside of school. At least one Internet-enabled device for every student and educator -- at home and at school. Use of Creative Commons and open licenses in course content and support for OpenCourseWare endeavors. Research & development into the use of gaming, simulations, and virtual worlds for instruction and assessment. http://www.edutopia.org/blog/national-educational-technology-plan- netp-audrey-watters
Encouragement of cloud computing for school districts, freeing local IT resources for other purposes. Development of computerized assessment tools that are both adaptive -- that is, respond to student's own input -- and accessible. Changes to FERPA (Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act) to open access to student data and enable better data portability for student and financial records. Changes to CIPA (Children's Internet Protection Act) to open access to the Internet and rethink how filtering works in schools.
