Supporting states and school districts in successful digital learning implementation

With the influx of new technology and increased connectivity, focused strategic planning is more important than ever to ensure digital learning opportunities for all students and educators. Most school districts have made investments in technology equipment, bandwidth and networking, training teachers and supporting both the technology and those using it. Many are looking at upgrading and expanding their use of technology either because of a specific initiative such as online assessment or for a broader push to a 1 to 1 program to accomplish specific school improvement goals. There are a number of factors for districts to consider as they embark upon this effort, key among them being planning, professional learning, software and digital content, broadband, devices, pedagogy and technology support. This resource is intended to provide guidance for districts to consider as they heighten their focus to ensure smooth implementation of digital learning. In addition, this resource includes proven resources and digital learning examples from across the nation to support discussions.
  • Planning

    The full scope of teaching, learning and operational needs that call upon technology in today’s schools demands a thoughtful mix of devices and infrastructure in order to achieve a broad range of goals.

  • Professional Learning

    An educational environment that includes more and more technology for students and educators demands systemic professional learning to support teachers throughout their careers.

  • Content & Software

    School districts must carefully navigate digital content and software options to best meet the academic needs of the students.

  • Broadband

    Easy access to reliable, robust, and cost-effective broadband and wi-fi provides the opportunity for engaging teaching and learning opportunities.

  • Devices

    Choosing the correct device is critical to the success of a digital learning environment. Schools and districts vary in their approach to deployment of devices depending on budget considerations and needs assessments.

  • Tech Support

    Rapid changes in the ways technology is used for learning require an approach to technology support (“tech support”) that reduces downtime and provides a fast, consistent, reliable experience for administrators, educators and students.
