Delivered by Distinguished Speaker Michael Robbins, Senior Advisor for Nonprofit Partnerships at the US Dept. of Education The digital learning revolution is more than trading textbooks for tablets – it is an unprecedented inflection point in education – a critical opportunity to transform how schools, parents, and community-based organizations collaborate on education. It should spur us to rethink how we connect all the assets in a student’s life to advance engagement in learning and academic success. There is unprecedented investment in education technology and digital learning initiatives. Unfortunately, we lack the corresponding investments to evolve education culture and build family and community supports to make these transformations successful. This session will discuss bridging this gap through digital learning partnerships and will explore how education technology should advance collective impact in education.
