El Executive Summary  se inicia así:

We believe that over the next five years there is an opportunity to significantly improve the preparation of American students. The implementation of college- and careerready standards, the shift to next-generation assessments, the rise of blended learning and the prevalence of affordable devices has laid the foundation for a national shift to personal digital learning. These shifts have the potential to engage young people as scientists, writers, producers, inventors, collaborators and problem solvers in ways that provoke deeper learning.

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation suggests that deeper learning prepares students to master core academic content, think critically and solve complex problems, work collaboratively, communicate effectively and learn how to learn.1

We agree with the Hewlett Foundation’s assertion that all students must have access to educational opportunities that foster deeper learning in order to be successful in college and their careers. Creating these opportunities for every student in every classroom can be achieved by using personal digital learning tools that customize the educational experience and serve the individual needs of each student on his/her own unique learning path.

This paper identifies three primary ways that digital learning promotes deeper learning:
 • Personalized skill building in preparation for deeper learning (e.g., adaptive learning in the Learning Lab at Rocketship Elementary);
• Schools and tools that foster deeper learning (e.g., project-based learning networks like New Tech); and
• Extended access (e.g., access to quality courses and teachers online).

The Mission of the Office of Digital Learning

Recent innovations in teaching methods and educational technologies, combined with developments in open access, have created an exciting opportunity to rethink the learning environment for students at MIT and around the world. Using digital methods to transfer information outside the classroom will enable professors and students to spend more time together building the knowledge, attitudes and skills that students need to become great thinkers and doers. Building on these trends, the mission of the Office of Digital Learning is to help the MIT community lead the world in education by creating, using and leveraging learning technologies and digital instructional content.

The Values of the Office of Digital Learning

Our core values:

A love of teaching.

MIT faculty are passionate about teaching! We believe that new digital approaches to educational technology and course content can catalyze this passion and re-ignite faculty creativity in education.

A pedagogy-first approach.

Let our educational goals and desires drive the technology, and not the other way around.

A focus on quality.

MIT courses must be able to retain the same intellectual challenge independent of the delivery medium or technological setting.

A commitment to openness.

MIT seeks to disseminate knowledge; this is accomplished through the open sharing of information, data, and code whenever possible.

A focus on learning research.

Leading the world in education requires an understanding of the foundations and mechanics of learning. Research on digital learning is essential to our mission.
