Remember The National Educational Technology Plan? Yes, it’s been a while since the last one was published back in 2017. A new one is underway, but first – someone to help create it. According to a Contract Opportunity posted on the SAM.gov website:
“In light of the rapid changes in technology capabilities over the last five years and new policy emphases of the current Administration, the Department requires technical support to develop a new national educational technology plan (2022 NETP). The Department anticipates that this work may build on the framework established in the most recent 2017 plan, including providing updated examples, goals and recommendations, and will further draw on lessons learned during the COVID pandemic. Overall, the 2022 NETP will inspire research, development, and innovation in the use of technology to enhance student learning and enhance the ability of schools and districts to support and evaluate that learning.
