Join us for this live chat on educational technology.

Getting more technology into schools has been a priority for
policymakers over the past 10 years, and in many respects, that goal has
been accomplished. Yet few experts would argue that America's schools
are making optimal use of the new digital tools they have received.

Likewise, few can point to evidence that all the new technology has
translated into great leaps forward in student learning.

Though federal, state, and local policy initiatives have poured billions
of dollars of technology spending into schools, average student
achievement is little better than it was 10 years ago, at least as
measured by reading, mathematics, and science scores on the federally
sponsored National Assessment of Educational Progress.

Looking ahead, policy on school technology will continue to be framed by
broader education policy--currently focused on students' academic
achievement and preparation for the global workforce, as well as the
reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act, which is supposed to
occur this year.

What progress has been made in the use of educational technology over
the past 10 years? How is it not being used effectively? What should
schools be doing to prepare for changes in technology in the future?
