Review of the national education technology plan 2010 (1)
The National Education technology Plan 2010 focus is to reform education with the use of everyday technologies by focusing on 5 essential components of learning with the use of technology. › The 5 components are Learning Assessment Teaching Infrastructure Productivity
Learning - Engage & Empower: Teaching-Prepare & Connect: Revise create, and implement Provide educators with standards and learning opportunities to have access objectives using technology to technology-based content, that incorporate 21st century tools and resources and know skills in all content areas when and how to use them. Assessment- Measure What Infrastructure-Access & Matters: Design, develop, and Enable: Provide students and implement assessments that teachers with the appropriate give students, educators, and technology-based tools to other s timely and actionable enable success. feedback about student Productivity-Redesign & learning to improve it. Transform: Redesign processes and structures using technology in order to improve and transform learning outcomes.

To prepare our students, we must bring 21st century technology into the classroom that makes learning meaningful, engaging, motivating, and inspiring for all. Students need adaptive learning skills that combine content knowledge with the ability to learn new things.

Assessments should be done to assess how students think during learning. Data received from assessments should be used to modify conditions and support continuous improvement and innovation. Technology should be used to design, develop, and validate new assessment materials and processes.

Can be used to support educators efforts to improve learning outcomes and productivity
Technology should allow educators to prepare students for the real world. With the use of technology, educators can work together to support their own learning and improve student learning. Connected teaching provides various opportunities to personalize learning, i.e. blended learning
Allows educators to break from traditional methods and collaborate with peers. Connected teaching makes it possible to reach specialized and exceptional educators through online learning activities. Professional development with the use of technology can increase digital literacy and help educators create assignments that improve learning, assessment, and instruction. Educators who are skilled in instructional design can provide online and blended learning experiences that are more personalized to students needs.
Comprehensive infrastructure for learning is necessary to move beyond the traditional model to a learning model that brings together teams and students. Infrastructure is necessary to support a learning society where learning is lifelong and lifewide.
Access to the Internet & wireless connectivity should be provided to both educators and students. Access to at least one mobile device and appropriate software. Open educational resources can promote innovative and creative opportunities for all learners and speed up the development and adoption of new technology. Building state & local education agency capacity for evolving. Develop and use interoperability standards for content and student-learning data. Develop and use interoperability standards for financial data to enable data-driven decision making.
Steps to productivity We must use the power of technology to redesign processes and structures to improve learning outcomes in a way that uses time, money, and staff efficiently. We must identify what we are looking for in learning outcomes.
Use data to make continuous improvements. Evaluate current practices and remove processes that do not improve learning. Develop a system of collecting data and use it to determine if the current form of education is improving outcomes and productivity. Design, implement, and evaluate technology- powered programs to ensure they are appropriate for the students to progress through P-16 education and beyond.
In order for us to be leaders in education, we must be leaders in the design and implementation using a new approach to R&D for education. There are four areas of focus › Continue to provide competitive grants for scaling innovative and evidence based practices through I3. › Transfer existing and emerging technology innovations from consumers, businesses, and entertainment into education. › Support and sustain the education R&D that is currently taking place at the National Science Foundation. › Create a new organization whose mission is to serve the public though R&D.
