The Portrait of a Nevada Learner was featured in the U.S. Department of Education Office of Educational Technology’s 2024 National Educational Technology Plan. ?

“Seldom is there the opportunity to read the story of the creation of a portrait. The Nevada Department of Education (NDE) has provided one by making the process by which the state is crafting its ‘Portrait of a Nevada Learner’ public and transparent.”

Technology is a powerful tool to shape the future of learning, and the Portrait  exemplifies this by capturing the essential skills and mindsets necessary for success in today’s world. Read the report (we’re featured on page 17!): https://tech.ed.gov/netp/
