How to Revitalize Schools With Tech
Last week, SCE Chairwoman, Susan Crown along with other top educators, technologists, philanthropists, entrepreneurs and investors participated in a task-force to discuss technology in education reform. The group prioritized the following four draft recommendations of what is needed in order for technology to accelerate learning:
1) Ensure that all public school students have high-speed internet access, devices, and tech support at school and at home
2) Start a national campaign to showcase and expand excellence in learning innovation
3) Radically re-imagine the classroom to enable personalized learning
4) Teach computer science (broadly defined mat every grade level, starting in kindergarten).
Watch a discussion of the results, as presented by Aspen Institute Chairman Walter Issacson and Barbara Jenkins, Superintendent of Orange County (FL) Public Schools. For more information, check out the Fortune and EdSurge coverage.
