SETDA Offers Advice on Technology Readiness for Common Core

Earlier this month, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) released guidance for policymakers and K-12 school leaders on school technology readiness needs for “college and career ready teaching, learning and assessment.”

The 5-page PDF addresses infrastructure and device considerations, long-range planning and budgeting, human resource issues, and other guidance for moving to Common Core State Standards and preparing for the online assessments under development by two multi-state consortia – the Partnership for the Assessment of College and Career Readiness (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortia.
