The US Department of Education is inviting comments on a National Education Technology Plan. The introduction describes a model of 21st century learning that calls for using technology to help built the capacity of educators through “connected teaching.” In such a model, teams of connected educators replace solo practitioners, and classrooms are fully connected to provide educators with 24/7 access to data, analytic tools, and other resources. Of note is the call to postsecondary institutions to partner more closely with K12 and the identification of a set of “grand
challenges” for R&D, seeking integrated solutions.
