Role of Technology is Spurring Student Achievement, Supporting Education Reform Efforts

Today’s U.S. Department of Education Daily Digest Bulletin in my inbox included a link to an educational event. Few of us will make it to Aspen to attend, but here are the highlights of one session addressing the role of technology by scaffolding student achievement, which in turn supports efforts in education reform. Although the presentation specifically addresses technology at the post-secondary level, I believe there may be clear implications for K-12 education. The opening blurb on the event says

U.S. Department of Education Chief of Staff Joanne Weiss will highlight the role of technology in transforming educational outcomes during discussions at the Aspen Ideas Festival this week.

The full event announcement can be read at the link below. Updates from this session will probably be added to the same general site area.
