What We Do

The mission of the Office of Educational Technology (OET) is to provide leadership for transforming education through the power of technology. OET develops national educational technology policy and establishes the vision for how technology can be used to support learning.  OET supports the President’s and Secretary’s priorities by:

  • Promoting equity of access by ensuring all learners are connected to broadband internet.
  • Supporting Future Ready educators and a robust ecosystem of entrepreneurs and innovators.
  • Leading cutting-edge research in learning analytics and data to provide new types of evidence and customize and improve learning.

OET is part of the Office of the Secretary of Education and as such works in collaboration and partnership with all other ED offices relating to effective use of technology to support learning. OET is also the primary office for outreach to the developer community.
