As part of our goal to support policymakers and education leaders in transforming education for the digital age, Digital Learning Now! is publishing the Smart Series. This series – released in partnership with the Foundation for Excellence in Education and Getting Smart – is a collection of interactive white papers aimed at equipping leaders with models, resources, and strategies for overcoming the various challenges in implementing digital learning.
The first paper, “Funding the Shift to Digital Learning: Three Strategies for Funding Sustainable High-Access Environments,” is now available on our website.
There is a growing demand for student devices due to the emergence of high-quality digital content, new online learning services, and the upcoming shift to online assessments administered by PARCC and SBAC. This paper highlights real examples of how states and school leaders are providing their students with the tools they will need to access next generation learning opportunities. Armed with these examples, other states will have the models and inspiration necessary to develop their own innovative methods to fund technology and revolutionize education for their students.
Please freely share this resource. It’s our hope that the Smart Series will become a vital tool for education leaders implementing technology strategies to provide every student with a rigorous, high-quality, customized education that prepares them for college, work, and life.
