Today, I have the pleasure of attending Digital Learning Day in Washington, D.C. Not only am I showcasing AT&T’s work in ed-tech, but I’m also learning about what other organizations are doing across the country in this field. It’s exciting to see so many new tools available to educators, students and parents to promote learning. From apps that help kids learn through games that regulate their social emotional health to the Nanodegree program – AT&T’s work continues to grow.

AT&T recognizes the potential of technology to transform education and change students’ lives – the Future Ready Dashboard brings us one step closer to making that transformation a reality.

Our collaboration with the Alliance for Excellent Education (AEE) has led us to be part of Digital Learning Day since its creation in 2012, and we are always honored to take part in the nationwide celebration. We are excited to be working with AEE on the Future Ready Schools Dashboard, supported by AT&T Aspire. The dashboard will be leveraged throughout summits the U.S. Department of Education is hosting across the nation. These regional summits are focused on exploring how school districts are implementing digital learning.

The Future Ready Schools program will provide a window on how education technology is being implemented in schools and integrated through curriculum across the country. The dashboard will be a central place for these learnings to be collected and will create a benchmark for how technology is benefitting schools and students today and how it could be further integrated in the future. AT&T recognizes the potential of technology to transform education and change students’ lives – the Future Ready Dashboard brings us one step closer to making that transformation a reality.
