Harness the Power of Technology
Duncan, Arne
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n8 p10-13 Jun-Jul 2011
Today, U.S. educators are teaching in the midst of a technological revolution. Technology promises to provide innovative solutions in the nation's classrooms, just as it has transformed the way people communicate, socialize, and conduct business. In this article, the author argues that now is the time to harness technology to revolutionize the way students learn and the way teachers teach. He stresses the need to work with peers to overcome obstacles and the challenges educators face as they create digital learning environments. He also emphasizes the role of the U.S. Department of Education and discusses five goals for the federal government to advance the digital classroom: (1) learning: engage and empower; (2) assessment: measure what matters; (3) teaching: prepare and connect; (4) infrastructure: access and enable; and (5) productivity: redesign and transform.
