Technology can be a powerful tool for transforming learning. It can help affirm and advance relationships between educators and students, reinvent our approaches to learning and collaboration, shrink long-standing equity and accessibility gaps, and adapt learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners.
Expanding Access to Broadband Adoption
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) addresses digital equity through a historic $65 billion investment, which could increase students’ access to technology-enabled learning opportunities. OET’s DEER Initiative aims to amplify strategies to support the adoption of broadband and connected devices for communities that are furthest away from digital opportunities.
Reimagining the Role of Technology in Education
The NETP is the flagship educational technology policy document for the United States. The plan articulates a vision of equity, active use, and collaborative leadership to make everywhere, all-the-time learning possible.
Equal Access to Educational Resources
This letter calls attention to disparities that persist in access to educational resources so that districts may address disparities and comply with the legal obligation to provide students with equal access to these resources without regard to race, color, or national origin.
