Helping Practitioners Meet the Goals of "No Child Left Behind"
Office of Educational Technology, US Department of Education
The rigorous assessment and accountability provisions in the landmark No Child Left Behind Act are challenging educators to explore new ways to improve instruction in the nation's schools. One powerful tool in this transformation is technology. To generate and share ideas on how technology can assist educators, two technology summits are convened to which technology experts and education practitioners are invited. As part of the summits, a number of white papers on a range of topics are commissioned. This publication is a compilation of these papers. This resource is designed to provide school leaders and policymakers with information on ways e-learning can help schools meet the goals of the "No Child Left Behind Act". Section I, Empowering Accountability and Assessment Using Technology, contains: (1) A Technology Framework to Support Accountability and Assessment: How States Can Evaluate Their Status for "No Child Left Behind" (Glynn D. Ligon); and (2) How States Can Use Information Technology to Support School Improvement Under NCLB (Chrys Dougherty). Section II, Increasing Options Through e-Learning, contains: (1) e-Learning Frameworks for NCLB (Susan R. Collins); (2) The Role of Educational Technology in Meeting the Promise of Supplemental Educational Services (Steve Fleischman); (3) How Can Virtual Schools Be a Vibrant Part of Meeting the Choice Provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act? (Bryan C. Hassel and Michelle Godard Terrell); and (4) Meeting the Need for High-Quality Teachers: e-Learning Solutions (Glenn M. Kleiman). Individual papers contain tables, figures and references.
