New Tool Helps School Districts Determine Readiness for Technology

The Alliance for Excellent Education today unveiled the Future Ready Interactive Planning Dashboard, a free online tool to help school districts make decisions on how to effectively use technology.

At the heart of the dashboard is a framework for digital learning planning that is composed of seven areas: curriculum, instruction, and assessment; professional learning; use of time; data and privacy; community partnerships; technology, networks, and hardware; and budget and resources.

The dashboard includes self-assessments for each of the seven areas to help districts determine their readiness to undergo a digital transformation.
