Education Technology: Revolutionizing Personal Learning & Assessment

In a widely-quoted commentary, famed educator John Dewey predicted that “if we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” This observation fits squarely with education policymakers’ call for re-engineering the modern classroom to harness the power of digital technologies. Education advocates envision schools where students master vital skills and critical thinking in a collaborative setting, teachers assess pupils in real time, and social media and digital libraries connect learners to a wide range of resources. What would digitized classrooms look like, and how could technology improve pupil engagement and mastery of concepts? How might educators scale up successful pilot projects?

On October 6, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a forum on education technology and its potential to transform the modern American classroom. Moderated by Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies, a panel of experts analyzed how to best incorporate digital technologies into American classrooms and increase the use of adaptive learning and assessment. Discussants also examined how education technology can enhance student performance and engagement.

After the program, panelists took audience questions.
