Technology in Education: An Overview

Technology is everywhere in education: Public schools in the United States now provide at least one computer for every five students. There remains limited evidence to show that technology and online learning are improving learning outcomes for most students. Each student should have a “Learner profile” that documents his or her strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and goals; Each student should pursue an individualized learning path that encourages him or her to set and manage personal academic goals; Students should follow a “Competency-based progression” that focuses on their ability to demonstrate mastery of a topic, rather than seat time; and, Students’ learning environments should be flexible and structured in ways that support their individual goals. Some critics of educational technology also point to a recent study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which found that countries where 15-year old students use computers most in the classroom scored the worst on international reading and math tests. In the department’s 2016 National Education Technology Plan, for example, it calls for states and districts to “Design, develop, and implement learning dashboards, response systems, and communication pathways that give students, educators, families, and other stakeholders timely and actionable feedback about student learning to improve achievement and instructional practices.”
