Maine DOE’s Learning Through Technology team has released the Maine Learning Technology Framework to support teachers, tech leads, librarians and other school leaders in their efforts to leverage technology to improve student learning.
“The research is clear,” says Learning Through Technology Policy Director Mike Muir. “Simply owning a device does not improve learning! What matters is what we do with that technology.”
The Maine Learning Technology Framework describes the key elements and components needed to get the greatest learning benefit from a district’s technology investment. At the center of the framework is a focus on student learning, surrounded by the school’s vision for the kinds of learning experiences they value and want to see in their schools.
Student learning is supported and undergirded by five pillars: Leadership, Professional Learning, Learning-Focused Access, Definition of Success, and Responsible Use.
