Archived: E?rate Modernization Progress Report (Jan 2017)

Doug Levin

On February 3, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rescinded a report issued two weeks earlier that examined the progress of E‐rate since the modernization orders of 2014 were passed. To that end, and in the public interest, I am making the January 2017 E-rate Modernization Progress Report ( DOC-343099A1.pdf ) available on this site in its entirety.

The 2017 EdNext Poll on School Reform: Digital Learning

Doug Levin

I have been critical of the treatment of technology in both the 2015 and 2016 Education Next back-to-school polls for a variety of reasons, including sloppiness in reporting, bias, and lack of relevance to education policy and practice considerations. Reporting by the poll authors aside, this is what struck me most about this year’s findings: Teachers seem to be strong proponents of equity of access to technology in high school classrooms for educational purposes.

Why personalized learning is hard to study

The Christensen Institute

NGLC schools yielded some positive academic results, but educators and administrators reported numerous challenges. And in some cases, such as how often teachers reported “keeping up-to-date documentation of student strengths, weaknesses, and goals,” the researchers detected little to no difference between personalized NGLC schools versus traditional schools. (NB: Already, headlines reporting on the findings alluded to the ‘hyped’ or overblown ambitions of personalized learning.
