CED Discusses “Digital Learning” in Newly Released Issue Brief

CED has released its latest issue brief "Digital Learning: Meeting the Challenges and Embracing the Opportunities for Teachers," which was written in cooperation with The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce and the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA). The brief discusses the digital landscape of today's classrooms, as well as the challenges that these advancements may cause teachers. Additionally, the brief gives specific examples of how teachers in the Northwest Independent School District have successfully integrated technology into the classroom.

From the brief:

These evolving student characteristics and the increased presence of technology and digital resources certainly provide challenges for schools as they work to adapt and embrace this rapidly changing environment. Issues like access and resources, teacher training and professional development, and structures and delivery methods must be addressed. However, the digital learning era also provides great opportunity to help schools advance student learning and acquire 21st century skills.
These opportunities include: increasing student enrichment, addressing teacher effectiveness, mitigating inequality, and preparing students for success.
