THE EACH CHILD LEARNS ACT
The Pathway to 21st-Century Student-Centered Personalized and Digital Learning
On August 1, the Alliance for Excellent Education began an unprecedented digital process asking the American public to participate in developing major new state legislation designed to make digital learning and educational technology available to all students around the country.
The proposed draft legislation, titled the Each Child Learns Act, will help states think strategically about how to incorporate technology into their classrooms to boost student learning and increase professional learning opportunities for teachers.
Between now and November 1, 2012, the Alliance will be accepting public input on the proposed draft legislation at email@example.com with the goal of making it a more valuable tool for policymakers and education professionals.
The full working draft legislative language for the Each Child Learns Act and an executive summary are available below:
