Transforming American Education: Learning Powered by Technology

Subject: on-line
Date: 2010-03-05

This is a draft report from the Office of Educational Technology, in the U.S. Department of Education.  It's amazing:  far-sighted, visionary, maybe dead on arrival.  It ends with recommendations that are thought-provoking and sweeping, but may not be funded.  From the executive summary:  "The challenging and rapidly changing demands of our global economy tell us what people need to know and who needs to learn. Advances in learning sciences show us how people learn. Technology makes it possible for us to act on this knowledge and understanding."  The report calls for new models of education like "on-demand learning" and "connected teaching" that challenge current assumptions.
