The Office of Educational Technology recently launched the Future Ready District Pledge, which establishes a framework for districts to achieve the goals laid out in President Obama’s ConnectED Initiative and commits districts to move as quickly as possible toward our shared vision of preparing students for success in college, careers and citizenship. Goals of the pledge include upgrading broadband and high-speed wireless connectivity, providing access to educational devices and digital content, and preparing teachers to use technology effectively to improve student learning.
