All learners will have engaging and empowering learning experiences both in and outside of school that prepare them to be active, creative, knowledgeable, and ethical participants in our globally networked society.
To meet this goal, we recommend the following action:
4.4 Recommendation: Build state and local education agency capacity for evolving an infrastructure for learning.
Building an infrastructure for learning is a far-reaching project that will demand concerted and coordinated effort. To start, districts and schools should begin a transition to the next generation of computing system architectures. They also should consider moving their technology systems and services from in-house datacenters to professionally managed datacenters in the cloud for greater efficiency and flexibility. To help states and districts make these transitions cost effectively and to leverage the scarce human talent and expertise that will be required, the Office of Educational Technology should support a clearinghouse that matches expert advice and services with those who need them.
