National Education Technology Plan 2010 | U.S. Department of Education


This summer, I have been paying attention to my classes and I missed out on the public comment portion of the "National Education Technology Plan 2010". So, now we have a chance to actually read the report. Here's a video announcing the plan:

I think this is VERY important for ALL students from every educational level. In fact, I have developed a recent interest in students who are from low-socio economic status backgrounds. It is amazing, but this group encompasses students from every ethnic background and nationality!

My husband is teaching high school science courses at a local public school and he is  in an educational leadership doctoral program at my university. His current research is focused on how we can reach K-12 students from these groups. To expand his research, I think that I should focus on how higher education faculty and staff can reach these students and help them succeed. An increased level of access to technology and computer literacy training may provide all populations with information to help them become more successful.
