Future Ready builds on the momentum of the President’s ConnectED Initiative with the launch of the Future Ready Pledge. The pledge recognizes the importance of building human capacity within schools and districts for effectively using increased connectivity and new devices to transform teaching and learning.
The President’s ConnectED Initiative aims to connect 99% of students across the country to broadband in 5 years. The initiative sets clear goals to transition to digital learning including: preparing teachers to use technology effectively to improve student learning, upgrading broadband and high-speed wireless connectivity, and providing access to educational devices and digital content.
Education leaders discuss the need for preparing districts, schools, and classrooms for 21st century learning.
This guide provides practical, actionable information intended to help district leaders (superintendents, principals, and teacher leaders) navigate the many decisions required to deliver cutting-edge connectivity to students.
The toolkit provides rubrics, checklists and examples to assist district teams as they develop, refine, and evaluate professional learning plans that align with their capacity, learning goals, and standards of professional learning. In particular, the toolkit focuses on how districts can use technology to connect educators and provide tailored professional learning experiences.
