US Office of Science and Technology

Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer of the United States, shares the importance of igniting innovation to reform America's education system. Chopra says that while the American education sector is approximately the same size as the pharmaceutical sector, it invests almost nothing in research and development, by comparison. Chopra articulates the government's interest in spurring the development of education technology innovations that are as effective as the best tutors, while being as engaging as the most popular video games.
