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).
