Over the years, Cable Impacts Foundation, the Partnership for 21st Century Learning and the State Educational Technology Directors Association have been leaders and catalysts in moving toward a new vision of education, one marked by teachers facilitating personalized learning emphasizing higher order thinking skills and creative problem solving, enabled by high-speed broadband, powerful devices and digital content. With new standards, curricula and assessments being adopted, many school systems have embarked on a major transformation into twenty-first century learning environments.

We saw a need for a planning tool that would help education leaders create their own roadmaps for change. To that end came together to create this tool, reviewing the research and gathering the input from dozens of experts. Learn more about each of our organizations and the experts who contributed to the Roadmap.

As the cable industry’s foundation dedicated to social responsibility, Cable Impacts leverages cable’s resources – including its platform, technology and content – to empower consumers and enhance communities. The foundation’s work targets: the advancement of education, increasing broadband adoption, and providing parents with the tools and resources to help their children appropriately and effectively use media. http://www.ncta.com/cableimpacts
