ConnectED. In June 2013, President Obama announced the ConnectED initiative, designed to enrich K-12 education for every student in America.

ConnectED

ConnectED empowers teachers with the best technology and the training to make the most of it, and empowers students through individualized learning and rich, digital content. Preparing America’s students with the skills they need to get good jobs and compete with other countries relies increasingly on interactive, personalized learning experiences driven by new technology. Yet fewer than 30% of America’s schools have the broadband they need to teach using today’s technology. Under ConnectED, however, 99% of American students will have access to next-generation broadband by 2017. That connectivity will help transform the classroom experience for all students, regardless of income. Get more details about those commitments – and if you’re a school administrator, teacher, or student, find out how you can take advantage. How ConnectED Works.

In previous decades students would only study maths or science if they wanted to follow a specific career such as medicine, pharmacy or engineering, but Ms Morgan said that now “couldn’t be further from the truth”.

Speaking at the launch of the “Your Life” campaign which has set itself a target of aiming for a 50 per cent increase in the number of teenagers opting for maths and physics within the next three years, she said: “If you wanted to do something, or even if you didn’t know what you wanted to do, then the arts and humanities were what you chose because they were useful for all kinds of jobs. “Of course, we know now that couldn’t be further from the truth – that the subjects that keep young people’s options open and unlock the door to all sorts of careers are the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths),” she added. She said: “These figures show us that too many young people are making choices age 15 which will hold them back for the rest of their lives.”
