Digital Learning Now!

On the heels of the latest installment of the DLN Smart Series, “Online Learning Myths, Reality & Promise,” Digital Learning Now! has released a second infographic on the myths surrounding online learning. “Busting Myths About Online Learning” outlines the advantages, myths and drivers of online learning.

As more and more states shift from a one-size-fits-all education model to a more personalized approach that includes technology and online learning, it’s become increasingly important to have a thoughtful strategy in place.

Together, the following resources help state education leaders to successfully launch and sustain an effective online learning program in their states:

Digital Learning Now! is a national campaign under the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) with the goal of advancing state policies that will create a high-quality digital learning environment to better equip all students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in this 21st-century economy. The policy framework stems from the belief that access to high-quality, customized learning experiences should be available to all students, unbounded by geography or artificial policy constraints.
