National Education Technology Plan 2010 EDIT 654 OL Christine Lasagne
The National Education Technology Plan 2010 (NETP) lays out a model of learning driven by technology with goals in the following areas: learning, assessment, teaching, infrastructure, and productivity.
“ Education is the key to America’s economic growth and prosperity and to our ability to compete in the global economy. ”
Learning: Use technology to engage and empower. Instruction should be relevant and personalized.
Assessment: Technology-based assessments monitor progress, and improve student learning in the moment.
Teaching: Use technology to connect educators to data, content, resources, and to each other.
Infrastructure: Students and educators will have access to all resources required for learning in the 21 st century.
Productivity: Redesign to make more efficient use of time, money, and staff.
Our education system should not only engage and empower, but should prepare all students for future success.
Under the Obama administration, a reform is necessary to ensure:
60% of U.S. population will hold a 2 or 4 year degree by 2020.
All students will graduate high school ready to succeed in college and careers.
Factors influencing reform:
Contemporary technology is a driver of change.
Both what students need to learn and how they learn have changed.
Students must be assessed to improve learning in the moment.
Educators must be connected.
Learning experiences should be available anytime, anywhere.
Learning: Engage and Empower
Goal: Use technology to create learning experiences both in and out of school that will prepare students to be creative and active lifelong learners.
“ The challenge for our education system is to leverage technology to create relevant learning experiences that mirror students’ daily lives and the reality of their futures.”
Instruction must match:
What students must learn : Students learning in the 21 st century need to advance in all standard learning domains including technological literacy.
How students must learn: Technology will be used to help reach the three types of human learning: factual knowledge, procedural knowledge, and motivational engagement.
Where & When students must learn: Technology will allow learning to be continuous and lifelong.
Who must learn: Universal Design for Learning created to reach all learners including: Low income, ELL, learners with disabilities, early childhood, adults, and seniors – STEM.
Assessment: Measure What Matters
Goal: Technology-based assessments will be used to monitor progress thus improving student learning in the moment.
Using this method, educators will be able to measure the progress of each student individually, then cater instruction based on that students’ needs.
Benefits of Technology-based Assessments
Through simulations, we can assess 21st century skills such as problem solving and critical thinking.
Clickers can be used to monitor comprehension throughout lessons.
ASSISTment system – web based tutoring system that combines “assistance” and “assessment.”
Adaptive assessment used to design learning experiences based on individual learner.
Assistive technology makes assessments accessible for all learners.
Electronic learning records follow students.
Teaching: Prepare and Connect
Goal: Technology will allow educators to connect to data, content, resources, and expertise as well as each other in order to provide effective instruction.
Our current education system is failing to give teachers the tools and professional development they need to succeed.
Technology helps connect
24/7 access to student data.
Allows educators to create engaging learning experiences.
Improves instructional practices – Teachers.tv
Online learning communities emerge connecting the classroom to the outside world.
Technology helps connect
to each other:
Social networking helps publicize teachers work.
Online systems engage educators in collaboration and builds professional communities.
Career-long personal learning networks make professional learning timely and relevant.
Infrastructure: Access and Enable
Goal: All students and educators will have constant access to all resources required for learning and teaching in the 21 st century.
Move away from traditional learning experiences to those that bring together teachers and students in classrooms, labs, workplaces, homes, etc. – anywhere internet access is available.
Sound Infrastructure Facilitates Learning
Adequate wireless coverage in and out of school.
Students and educators must have access devices - laptops, eReaders, mobile phones, portable digital players, etc.
Open educational resources (OER) widely available for use.
Productivity: Redesign and Transformation
Goal: Redesign instructional processes while using technology to improve learning and make more efficient use of time, money, and staff.
It has become evident that we will not achieve success by simply spending more money. We must redesign and spend wisely!
Steps to Redesign
DOE team identifies productivity strategies, then works with others to implement them.
Measuring and managing costs – cost accounting.
Collect data on current uses of technology in education. Data should determine decisions.
Implement both a competency-based approach and student-centered scheduling.
Technology-powered programs remove barriers to secondary and postsecondary graduation.
R&D: Innovate and Scale
Goal: Research the effectiveness of educational technology before, during, and after products and services have been deployed.
Research is being done after the fact – when it’s too late to make any major improvements.
New Approach to R&D
Continue to provide competitive grants.
Transfer existing and innovative technology into education.
Support & sustain current R&D occurring at the National Science Foundation.
