Digitally enhanced education (DEE) has arrived in California’s classrooms, but there is little data or evidence-based guidance about what works, for whom, and under which conditions. To explore these issues, the California Teacher Advisory Council (CalTAC) and its supporting organization, the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), convened a series of symposia, the most recent of which was held on September 13, 2013 at the California Department of Education in Sacramento, California. The Efficacy of Digitally Enhanced Education in California series brought together representatives of the education, technology, policy, research, and philanthropic communities; it was designed as an ongoing conversation among those with distinct but complementary perspectives on the efficacy of DEE.

This report summarizes discussions from the symposium which took place at the CDE on September 13, 2013.
