California Educational Technology Blueprint Recommendation #1: To ensure a technology skills gap will not become the next achievement gap, California should work toward providing every student, teacher, and administrator with access to at least one Internet-connected device.

The state of California explains, "these one-to-one initiatives can enhance any time, any place learning. To ensure they do, these devices should meet the Smarter Balanced minimum hardware specifications." Taken from Empowering Learning A Blueprint for California Education Technology 2014-2017.

"In addition, if these devices are provided to students in lieu of traditional textbook or instructional material, then districts will need to have systems or policies in place to ensure compliance with California Education Code provisions relating to the sufficiency of textbooks and instructional materials."

"This transition will require the adoption of new policies and learning strategies to foster student engagement and individualized learning using technology." Taken from Empowering Learning A Blueprint for California Education Technology 2014-2017.
