K-12 Blueprint Toolkits
Today’s education system is evolving to take full advantage of the potential of technology to inspire learning and create independent, critical thinkers. However, education leaders involved in planning and implementing technology initiatives often encounter challenges that can be difficult to overcome without the proper resources and support.
To help school leaders keep pace with current research and educational practices, the K-12 Blueprint offers a number of “Toolkits” that include resources to help support technology initiatives and standards-based learning. Whether you are launching a one-to-one computing program, moving from print textbooks to digital content, revamping the curriculum to meet Common Core State Standards, or revising your current policies on educational technology, these toolkits will inform and guide your decisions along the way.
Each toolkit below contains adaptable files that you can download and share with staff, community, and other decision makers.
