Ohio's New EducationTechnology Plan Calls for a P-20 Focus

e-TState Education Technology Planech Ohio will work with state, regional and local organizations to find solutions to issues that arise as we integrate technology more fully into the learning environment, and better connect systems and processes along the P-20 continuum. - Kate Harkin, eTech Ohio Executive Director.

As required by House Bill 1, e-Tech Ohio submitted a new education technology plan last week to the governor and state legislature. e-Tech is the state agency charged with state agency charged with finding ways to mobilize technology to accelerate academic achievement and opportunities for Ohioans.
 
The new Educational Technology Plan [1] identifies ways to impact learning and support educators as they work with students of all ages within what the plan recognizes as the P-20 educational continuum.
 
The plan specifically outlines the following objectives for Ohio's educational system:
  • Expand and integrate a P-20 longitudinal data system
  • Provide virtual learning content and opportunities to all Ohio learners
  • Develop advanced student service systems
  • Deliver high quality professional development for educators
  • Support public broadcasting and media delivery
  • Continue to support the implementation of federal programs
Significantly, among the metrics to determine the plan's success will be the number of students earning dual credit (high school and college) or taking Advanced Placement coursework using distance learning.
