Next Technologies for Learning (NTL) is a plan for the next innovative technologies that will impact learning. The goal of NTL is to personalize learning for students to support their pathway to college and career readiness. The first phase of this work has largely focused on building a foundation of digital content, tools, literacy, wireless infrastructure and the capacity in staff and students to leverage these tools and resources. These stepping stones allow Bloomington to continue to grow and systematize the best practices we are already using.
