California schools are focusing on technology to improve learning opportunities for students.

Superintendent Tom Torlakson says all students need to have computers to properly prepare for college.

"Our goal is within five years to have every student at every school and every teacher connected to the Internet and having training to be able use the technology wisely and effectively in our classrooms," he said. 

Torlakson says that will improve teaching and learning.

"Let's say a teacher is going to be gone the next day, they can record a lesson and then it's there for the class to have. And conversely, if the student is absent for some reason, they can log on at home and see the teacher's lecture," Torlakson said. 

The superintendent's new blueprint also aims to develop programs for using technology in assessment testing.
