This webinar will highlight SETDA’s latest research, Navigating the Digital Shift 2018:Broadening Student Learning Opportunities. As states and districts shift to implement digital instructional materials, the report provides information and guidance on state acquisition and procurement policies, selection and curation processes. States are increasingly providing guidance, definitions, and vetting policies and practices for the implementation of digital materials to help ensure that digital materials are available to learners via devices anywhere,anytime.
Hear examples from presenters of state and district leadership that support digital learning opportunities. Elizabeth James from the Idaho State Department of Education highlights Idaho’s leadership in the instructional materials review process. Dr. Bart Rocco from Elizabeth Forward School District in Pennsylvania (A Future Ready School) discusses the district’s journey to the effective implementation of digital materials. There will be time for questions after the presentation. Administrators, policy makers, curriculum directors, and IT staff will benefit from attending this session.
Online Community: In addition to the webinar, SETDA’s online community of practice, Essential Elements for Digital Content provides policy makers, school administrators and educator leaders a better understanding of policies and practices related to digital instructional materials. The community is free and open to the public and engages in dialogue about the shift to digital including the vetting process, accessibility, professional learning, OER, procurement, implementation and infrastructure.
