I found this information in a January 2017 National Education Technology Plan Update from the U.S. Department of Education - http://tech.ed.gov  

The need for Access and Effective Use is critical as we prepare for remote learning for 2020-2021 and beyond.

"Preparing students to be successful for the future requires a robust and flexible learning infrastructure capable of supporting new types of engagement and providing ubiquitous access to the technology tools that allow students to create, design, and explore. Essential components include the following:

1. Ubiquitous connectivity. Persistent access to high-speed internet in and out of school. 

2. Powerful learning devices. Access to mobile devices that connect learners and educators to the vast resources of the internet and facilitate communication and collaboration.

3. High-quality digital learning content. Digital learning content and tools that can be used to design and deliver engaging and relevant learning experiences.

4. Responsible Use Policies (RUPs). Guidelines to safeguard students and ensure that the infrastructure is used to support learning."

As we think about providing learning opportunities for students through remote learning, we can ask these questions about our own communities and develop a plan to address concerns.
