The National Education Technology Plan is the flagship educational technology policy document for the United States.
As a part of my work with the US Department of Education, the Office of Educational Technology launched the 2016 National Education Technology Plan. One of the goals of the 2016 plan within the office was to distribute the plan beyond a PDF posted to the website. The goal then, was to format the publication for a website. The NETP was a project that required significant coordination with the whole Office of Educational Technology as well as various other parts of the Department of Education and the White House.
In order to provide proper visual distinction between the text of the plan and the examples highlighted by the plan, the colored boxes were designed to provide visual cues and break up the text. Varying the layout helps to keep each page visually distinct.
