Technology has changed the way we live, work, shop and play. We can bank, shop and donate securely from anywhere we can access the Internet. We can to communicate across oceans and continents in seconds. We can work from anywhere, increasing efficiency and productivity. Yet, American education has yet to embrace the power of technology to customize education and give students the ability to gain knowledge anywhere, anytime.

Digital learning is any type of learning that gives students some element of control over time, place, path and/or pace. It allows students to learn in their own way, on their own timetable, wherever they are, whenever they can.  Students are using digital learning everywhere – except school. They are gaming, texting and posting on the Internet.

Imagine if we channel those digital skills into learning? Student achievement would skyrocket!

The 7 Transformational Metrics:

In developing their plans, states should adopt a sense of urgency around certain policy areas:

  1. establishing a competency-based education that requires students to demonstrate mastery of the material,
  2. providing a robust offering of high quality courses from multiple providers,
  3. ending the archaic practice of seat-time,
  4. funding education based on achievement instead of attendance,
  5. funding the student instead of the system,
  6. eliminating the all-too-common practice by school districts of prohibiting students from enrolling with approved providers, either by withholding funding or credit, and
  7. breaking down the barriers, such as teacher-student ratios and class size limits, to effective, high quality instruction.

Ultimately, data provides the empirical basis for lawmakers and policymakers to develop sound policy.
