Main Goals of the National Educational Technology Plan

by Allacyn - Jan 20, 2011


Technology has vastly changed our world today and plays a large role in peoples lives, but it still hasn’t impacted education the way it has other areas like business. That might all change within the next four years. Below are the five main goals of the¬†National Educational Technology Plan as outlined by Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education.

  • Using Educational technology to fundamentally change the learning process by making it more engaging and tailored to individual student needs and interests;
  • Using ed-tech to develop a new generation of assessments;
  • Connecting teachers with their peers and experts so they are always up-to-date on the resources available to them;
  • Building infrastructure that lets schools support access to technology in and out of the classroom; and
  • Harnessing the power of educational technology to increase school district productivity and student achievement.

What are your opinions of these goals and the plan? Do you think this is realistic with the 2015 deadline that Duncan set? What will it take to accomplish these goals?
