  3. 3.  To develop an education system that will: o Increase access to education all over the US o Foster ICT Skills • Prepare students for success in the competitive global economy • Promote lifelong learning strategies o To provide a vision to states, districts, and other stakeholders as to how to improve American education o To present a model of 21st century learning powered by technology
  4. 4.  Learning: Engagement and Empower Assessments :Measure what Matters Teaching :Prepare and Connect Infrastructure: Access and Enable Productivity Productivity: Redesign and Transform
  5. 5.  GOAL: All learners will have engaging and empowering learning experiences that prepare them to be active, creative, knowledgeable, and ethical participants in our globally networked society.”
  6. 6.  Determine how students learn e.g. blogs, collaboration, etc. Emphasis should be placed on personalized, differentiated and individualized learning Ensure students have 21st Century Skills Universal Design for Learning Framework
  7. 7.  GOAL: Our education system will leverage the power of technology to measure what matter and use assessment information for continuous improvement.”
  8. 8.  "Im calling on our nations governors and state education chiefs to develop standards and assessments that dont simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they possess 21st century skills like problem-solving and critical thinking and entrepreneurship and creativity." —President Barack Obama, Address to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, March 10, 2009
  9. 9.  Embedded assessments i.e. simulations, collaboration environments, virtual worlds, games and cognitive tutors Technology based assessments that combined cognitive research and theory Feedback about student learning to improve achievement and instructional practices. Tools and training—that can help manage the assessment process, analyze relevant information Adaptive Assessment- Facilitates Differentiated Learning
  10. 10.  Why use Technology Based Assessments? • Enable us to assess how well students communicate for a variety of purposes and in a variety of ways, including in virtual environments • We can use them to assess what students learn outside school walls and hours as well as inside. • It supports measuring performance that cannot be assessed with conventional testing formats • Helps improve learning and assessments
  11. 11.  What impact does Technology have on Assessments? o Technology Speeds Development and Testing of New Assessments o Technology Enables Broader Involvement in Providing Feedback o Technology Could Reduce Test Taking for Accountability Only (it is possible to reduce the number of external assessments needed to audit the education system’s quality. o Technology allows assessments using Universal Design for Learning principles that make assessments more accessible, effective, and valid for students with disability and English language capability.
  12. 12.  GOAL:“Professional educators will be supported individually andin teams by technology that connects them todata, content, resources, expertise, and learningexperiences that can empower and inspire them to providemore effective teaching for all learners.”

  15. 15.  24/7 Access to data from multiple sources while ensuring appropriate levels of security and privacy Broadband Everywhere Multiple Access Points- adequate wireless connectivity E-Rate provisions and CIPA requirements (filters) Supported - the development and use of open educational resources to promote innovative and creative opportunities Human Talent and Scaling Expertise
  16. 16.  GOAL “The education system at all levels will redesign processes and structures to take advantage of the power of technology to improve learning outcomes while making more efficient use of time, money, and staff.”
  17. 17.  Cost Efficiency and Cost Savings Strategies - states and districts should adopt common cost-accounting standards for benchmarking and analyzing costs Process redesigns that takes advantage of the impact and power of technology for improving performance and increasing productivity.
  18. 18.  How can Technology support the reorganization? o By enabling more flexible student-centered scheduling o By facilitating the implementation of competency- based approach to education. (students earn credit for graduation by demonstrating their competence with respect to the standards stipulated by their school districts)
  19. 19. How do we achieve our goal of leading theworld in education? Provide Competitive grants to schools and non profit organizations for innovations to improve k-12 education Transfer current technology innovations from consumer, business and entertainment sectors to education Support education Research and Developmental that is occurring at the National Science Foundation
  20. 20.  What is the Purpose of The National Center for Research and Digital Technologies? o Promote transparency and Private and Public collaboration with the best industry minds o Interoperability Standards o Identify key research and development challenges o Identify Key emerging Trends o individual project share developments, progress, best practices, and outcomes with each other o Show the feasibility of innovative tools, content, and pedagogies that leverage knowledge, information, and technology advances at the
