The report points to evidence that technology has the potential to help expand education beyond traditional boundaries and support key practices of student-centered learning.
According to the report, technology holds the potential to:
- Help diagnose and address individual needs.
- Equip students with skills essential for work and life in a 21st century global society.
- Provide an active experience for students.
The report also mentions that technology can:
- Provide an invaluable way to deliver more student- centered/personalized learning in a cost-effective way.
- Enhance academic achievement, civic engagement, acquisition of leadership skills, and personal/social development.
The report also points out that there has been relatively little research studying the effects of similar technology across different subgroups. The authors point out that such research would be necessary before specific technology could be recommended to close academic achievement gaps between populations.
