Ed tech tops agenda at Intel gathering

Abstract:
At the fifth annual Intel Visionary Conference in Washington, D.C., speakers touted the value of educational technology in helping to give students the skills to succeed in future jobs that "are not even on our radar right now."

(Tim Magner, director of ED's Office of Educational Technology) went on to discuss advancements in nanotechnology that will force paradigm shifts in medicine and manufacturing, creating industries still unthinkable today. The smartest, most certain way to equip students for the uncertain, internationally competitive workforce of the future, he suggested, is to endow them with core math and science skills that will remain fundamental building blocks for professions yet to come.
