MILPITAS—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson’s Education Technology Task Force released a new report today that outlines steps California should take to ensure education technology can be an effective, safe, and productive tool for learning over the next few years.
“As California continues to move toward college and career readiness for every child, education technology has to be part of what we do,” Torlakson said. “I’ve visited classrooms up and down the state and seen everything from virtual science experiments to online group projects. From Common Core to the new Smarter Balanced assessments, our state—which has always led the way in innovation—is focused on preparing student with the real-world skills they need. This new blueprint charts a smart course for getting us there.”
