The current global conversation on technology-enhanced learning is missing a key element: what are the most useful metrics, standards, and methods for ensuring that modes of education using technology have a positive effect on learning outcomes? As a world-renowned leader in the development of technologies and methodologies to improve student learning, Carnegie Mellon is ideally suited to assemble a Global Learning Council to help establish the standards and metrics we need. I am very pleased to be a member of this Council.
