The LEAD Commission's 5 Point Plan for Digital Learning in the United States

The Leading Education by Advancing Digital (LEAD) Commission was created in March 2012 and is co-chaired by:
Lee Bollinger (President of Columbia University),
Jim Coulter (CoFounder of TPG Capital),
Margaret Spellings (Former Secretary of Education) and
Jim Steyer (CEO of Common Sense Media).

The Commission’s goal is to research the state of technology in American schools and answer two key questions: “Why is the adoption of technology happening so slowly?” and more importantly, “What can we as a country do about it?”
