Washington, D.C. (December 10, 2020) - The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) today released new information on how it will lead efforts of how states can leverage the potential for technology to support quality teaching and learning.
Our vision for the use of technology beyond the pandemic is in pursuit of a more modern, equitable preK-12 education system.
These modernization efforts will not only support remote and hybrid learning, but will also set the conditions necessary for states to foster student-centered learning, competency-based education, and project-based learning. Our work will align equity imperatives; vision, policy and leadership; innovation and technology; educator supports such as high-quality instructional materials; and student and parent engagement. We aim to support states in developing an ecosystem that embraces lessons learned throughout this pandemic to improve how our education system can better serve all students.
