ESSA, EdTech, and the Future of Education

A comprehensive 40-page handbook for states and districts

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the new law of the land. It gives states the right to define educational standards for their schools and the flexibility to determine how students meet those standards.

The law also authorizes new funding streams that can potentially help states and districts invest in technology to support everything from personalized learning and enhanced digital content to advanced assessment and data analytics—as well as the staff development needed to put these tools to use.

This comprehensive handbook published by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) offers states and districts direction on how to take advantage of these new opportunities and suggestions on how to integrate technology with a broader strategic vision to guide teaching and learning. Download this essential guide now to discover how you can:

  • Leverage funding streams to support technology
  • Increase data use and implement new learning models
  • Align ESSA requirements with other priorities and initiatives
  • Develop consolidated plans to use technology in broader ways
