The Role of Technology in Higher Education

Students in ED 540 reviewed the National Education  Technology Plan, "Reimagining the Role of Technology in Education", which was released in 2017. The plan articulates a vision of equity, active use, and collaborative leadership to make everywhere, all-the-time learning possible. Students used information from this report, and presented it in animated videos. I hope you enjoy their great work!
