We recently sat down with John Bailey, the Executive Director of Digital Learning Now! (An initiative of the Foundation for Excellence in Education) to discuss his work in education technology including what it’s like to work inside the White House. John shares his thoughts on the role education technology plays on greater reform initiatives and where we stand as a country in these efforts. We also learn about Digital Learning Now! and their current work to advance policies aimed at the creation of high-quality digital learning environments. John shares his thoughts on the power and staying-power of MOOC’s and other advances in education technology.
