The California Department of Education (CDE) today issued this week’s roundup of education-related announcements of public interest.
CDE Moves Forward with Implementing State’s Education Technology Plan
California is moving a step closer to implementing a plan to provide the 21st century education technology tools students need to prepare for college and careers, with the addition of Karen Holst, who will serve as an Education Technology Fellow.
Holst will work on recommendations made by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson’s Education Technology Task Force in its report, Empowering Learning: California Education Technology Blueprint, 2014 – 2017 (PDF). The recommendations address improving teaching and learning with the help of technology, concentrating on learning, teaching, assessment, and infrastructure.
