McMorris Rodgers Leads the Charge to Innovate America’s Classrooms
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after introducingH.R. 678, the 21st Century Classroom Innovation Act, which encourages the use of blended learning in the classroom.
“As the mom of three young children, I’ve seen firsthand how technology in the classroom can transform education. In the past few years we’ve seen an increase in the number of schools integrating technology – and these personalized learning tools are empowering students to reach new heights,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers. “By giving schools in Eastern Washington and across the country the choice to incorporate technology into their lesson plans, we will help our nation’s students reach their full potential and succeed in the 21st century.”
The 21st Century Classroom Innovation Act will enable state education agencies to recognize blended learning pilot programs at the local level, allowing fully integrated technology instruction to better support personalized instruction for all students.
Participating schools will demonstrate improved students’ assessed outcomes by using actionable data from students’ work.
