Tech in the schools is a major factor in policymakers' thinking about how to reshape K-12 education.
During his State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to commit new resources to create a master teacher corps that specializes in science, technology, engineering and math to produce 10,000 additional STEM teachers. He also proposed a new competition to spur renovations in high schools that emphasize real-world learning.
In a National Press Club speech last fall, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said that one area he plans to focus on during President Obama's second term is increasing the use of technology in the classroom.
It is expected that the 113th Congress will take up legislation on a few bills regarding technology in the classroom. It's a huge part of how policymakers would like to reshape K-12 education.
