This report is part of Alliance for Excellent Education's initiative aimed at getting states to pass policies more friendly to digital learning. The report notes the latest developments in the ed-tech arena while acknowledging that challenges raised in the original report still affect today's teachers and learners. The report breaks those challenges into three categories: workplace readiness, budget shortfalls, and access to high-quality education. Technology can help address these gaps and challenges, the report says, through real-time data and assessment feedback, a variety of online and digital content, and increased communication with teachers, parents, and students, teachers.
