    California Ed Tech Blueprint

    The California Department of Education is rewriting the Education Technology Plan. Here is how you can contirbute to this important work:

    1. Review the recommendations received from the Superintendent's Education Technology Task Force,
    2. Comment on the recommendations
    3. Attend a briefing on the recommendations or view an archived briefing posted here,
    4. Submit research, case studies, and other information for consideration.

    The Process

    On March 17, 2012, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson appointed 48 volunteers to become members of his Education Technology Task Force. Gathering advice from the Task Force was the first step in the State Superintendent's effort to update the Education Technology Plan approved by the State Board of Education in 2005. Task Force members presented their findings August 2012. The State Superintendent and his staff will embark on a statewide tour in September to accept public comment on its findings. And in the late Fall of 2012, the department will draft a new Education Technology Blueprint. All drafts will be posted here for public comment. The final document will be released in early 2013.
