Embedding Technology in Education for All Learners

The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) lists here its recommendations to the National Education Technology Plan with the Technical Working Group (an ad hoc group of experts on a particular topic who work together on specific goals). Technology is a driving force that will shape the future of our nation and, as such, it must be fully integrated and embedded in education. Here, the CEC urges the Technical Working Group to consider the needs of diverse learners, including students with disabilities and/or gifts and talents, throughout the Plan. CEC’s comments center on three of the four themes articulated by the Technical Working Group: teaching, learning, and assessments; and will weave in anecdotes received from CEC members regarding their use of technology. https://www.cec.sped.org/~/media/Files/Policy/Archives/
