Transforming Education with Technology
Scherer, Marge
Educational Leadership, v68 n5 p16-21 Feb 2011
In this EL interview, Karen Cator, the director of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education, talks about ways to realize the potential of technology to transform education. She discusses what students need: their own digital devices for classroom use, the ability to use the information they access, the skills to communicate and collaborate online, and the understanding of what it means to be a digital citizen. To make the new national vision for technology in schools come to fruition, broadband must be available everywhere, and every educator must be a highly connected one, she notes.
