2010 National Education Technology Plan

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