Classroom technology should take a back seat to learning structure, experts say

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:30 am

Acquiring new classroom technology for students to explore isn’t as important as reforming the pedagogical structure they’re learning in — including a redefinition of success and accountability for students and teachers — according to 2019 policy priorities released last week by the the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, or iNACOL.For state officials and stakeholders, the priorities are more incremental and localized. iNACOL advocates for new standards of proficiency based on subject mastery, not “seat time” or how long a student spends on a subject; new accountability models and assessments; modernizing educator training; and enabling new education paths for students, like mastery-based diplomas and flexible credit transfers.
