Technology Counts 2013: Building the Digital District
Education Week, v32 n25 Mar 2013
Schools are working to incorporate more multimedia into classrooms, upgrade online professional development, and do a better job using data to improve student achievement. Even though nearly every school in the country is now connected to the Internet, not all of them have the kind of connections that allow teachers and students to make full use of digital learning tools. Some ed-tech leaders say the federal program's current policy not to reimburse districts for out-of-school broadband access is a barrier to innovation and better use of digital tools for learning. Putting a computing device in the hands of every student requires a willingness to take risks and an understanding of what has worked in the past. But education leaders are wrestling with how to put measures in place to allow students to take school-issued digital devices home at the end of each day. Experts say professional development should put razor-sharp attention on what students need to learn, rather than on how to use specific devices.
