“ Technology is at the core of virtually every aspect of our daily lives and work, and we must leverage it to provide engaging and powerful learning experiences and content, as well as resources and assessments that measure student achievement in more complete, authentic, and meaningful ways. ” Retrieved from The National Education Technology Plan http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010
A technology plan is a set of standards that the government, individual states, and/or a school district set, to create a goal as to where student’s technology proficiency should be when they leave high school and move on to college and/or the job market.
“ 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. In contrast to traditional classroom instruction, this requires that we put students at the center and empower them to take control of their own learning by providing flexibility on several dimensions.” Retrieved on May 11, 2011 from The National Education Technology Plan: http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010
