The Alliance for Excellent Education held a webinar on July 30 to discuss and seek feedback on a working draft of suggested legislation for personalized and digital learning that is currently being developed by the Alliance.
Over the past several years, the Alliance has been developing digital learning policy that supports the effective use of technology as a way to drive higher student achievement. More states are taking policy actions to implement innovative types of student-centered learning and seeking guidance in the legislative drafting process. This working draft of suggested legislation is meant to assist states as they plan strategically for the future, develop workable timelines for implementation, and create important quality safeguards and transparency guidelines. The webinar also represents the opening of a public comment period, during which the Alliance will seek feedback and comments from policymakers and the public.
This webinar highlighted the recommended legislative actions and language that have been developed so far in the working draft. Following the discussion, there was an interactive conversation among the panelists using questions submitted by participants from the around the country.
An executive summary of the legislation is available at http://www.all4ed.org/files/Executive_Summary_of_Each_Child_Learns.pdf
