Connected Learning in the Digital Age: Improving American Education Through Technology

Categories:

SEPTEMBER 10, 2013
WASHINGTON, D. C.

Private and public sector leaders from both parties agree that making better use of educational technology is critical to improving America’s K-12 education, and that all students and teachers need access to high-speed broadband Internet and digital learning tools. But there are vital questions about how to achieve these goals as quickly, ubiquitously, and cost-effectively as possible.  

 
At this one-day summit, education and broadband experts, business leaders, and senior policymakers will discuss the findings of the LEAD Commission and how to advance key education technology goals, including how best to streamline and modernize E-Rate, ensure the availability of effective digital learning content, and support teachers in the digital classroom.  
 
Not open to the public but please follow the proceedings on Twitter #edtechconnect and watch a live webcast beginning at 8:30 a.m. EDT.
