Learning Forward joins technology project

By Learning Forward
October 2022

Learning Forward is partnering with the State Education Technology Directors Association in a 15-month project to develop the next National Educational Technology Plan for the U.S. Department of Education. Other partners include Innovate EDU, Project Tomorrow, and Whiteboard Advisors.

The coalition’s work will support the U.S. Department of Education in leveraging federal technology and connectivity investments to help schools create powerful and engaging learning opportunities for students and educators.

A primary goal for the work is to give the public ample opportunity to provide input to the development of the plan. Learning Forward and Project Tomorrow will co-lead a listening tour to gather this feedback. This will include facilitating individual and group sessions as well as the development of a work plan, protocols and templates for the meetings, and a synthesis of the feedback to inform the plan.

The development of the National Educational Technology Plan supports Learning Forward’s advocacy efforts to gather input from constituents across the education system and emphasize the importance of high-quality professional learning as a must-have for a successful technology plan. For more information, contact Melinda George, Learning Forward’s chief policy officer, at melinda.george@learningforward.org.
