Alliance Report Offers Federal Recommendations on Digital Learning and Technology

From the Alliance for Excellent Education

Drawing upon promising educational practices already underway in several states, a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education connects how federal efforts can enable states, districts, and schools to maximize technology and digital learning to improve student outcomes.  To ensure that all students have access to this advanced educational environment, the report recommends specific ways for the federal government to assist local and state educators to better utilize technology and digital learning to transform the American education system.   “America has only begun to scratch the surface of what is possible with technology and digital learning in the area of education,” said Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, co-chair of Digital Learning Now (DLN), and former governor of West Virginia.  “Now is the time for digital learning,” said Jeb Bush, chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, co-chair of DLN, and former governor of Florida.  “Through technology, we can provide every student access to a high-quality education that is tailored to their learning pace, style, and interests.  Yet, the U.S. education system currently operates as an eight-track tape in an iPod world.  Students deserve better.  The “10 Elements of High-Quality Digital Learning” is a roadmap to unleash the power of digital learning in education.”
