Future plans for ETAC include the ability to work virtually through Project Share to examine the new National Educational Technology Plan and its implications for the Long-Range Plan for Technology (LRPT). In addition, there is a need to determine the priorities for 2011-2015 in light of the progress to date, especially in the areas of digital content, electronic textbooks, online learning, professional learning communities, etc. ETAC will make recommendations for changes to the STaR Chart, ePlan, and other tools to assist districts in planning and provide information to the agency for state-level planning purposes, as well as examine the impact of STEM and college and career readiness initiatives on the LRPT. Overall, ETAC helps the agency connect the dots across the various educational initiatives and how the Long-Range Plan for Technology (LRPT) supports and enables them to leverage technology.
