Statewide school technology plan moves forward

The Utah State Board of Education has unanimously approved "Essential Elements for Technology Powered Education."


The Utah State Board of Education voted unanimously Friday (10-9-2015) to adopt the “Essential Elements for Technology Powered Learning” master plan proposed by the Utah Digital Learning Task Force that included district superintendents and charter school leaders, district technology directors and other education leaders. The Utah Education Network, the Utah State Office of Educaiton and the Governor's Office provided staff support to the task force.

 “Utah’s new Essential Elements plan is poised to bring opportunity, equity, training and technology to all Utah institutions that participate. As a former Utah school superintendent and current CEO of UETN, I believe the master plan is well-suited to both urban and rural schools. Students, educators and the public all stand to benefit. I highly recommend that the state move forward with this initiative,” said Ray Timothy, CEO and Executive Director of the Utah Education and Telehealth Network.
