Please join Future Ready Schools (FRS ) in a webinar that is part of the FRS Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders. This Google Hangout will explore the National Education Technology Plan (NETP ), the flagship education technology policy document for the United States.
The 2016 NETP, Future Ready Learning: Reimagining the Role of Technology in Education, articulates a vision of equity, active use, and collaborative leadership to make everywhere, all-the-time learning possible. While acknowledging the continuing need to provide greater equity of access to technology itself, the plan goes further to call upon all involved in American education to ensure equity of access to transformational learning experiences enabled by technology. The principles and examples provided in the plan align with Title IV A (Activities to Support the Effective Use of Technology ) of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.
As lead on the revised 2016 NETP, Zac Chase from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology will share insights into the plan’s development, desired outcomes, key themes, resources, and how the plan can benefit all school districts across the nation. FRS’s Tom Murray will moderate this engaging conversation on the vision for educational technology in the nation. Mr. Chase and Mr. Murray will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
