PROJECT 24 WEBINAR November 14: Finding the Balance: Ensuring Quality in the Shift to a Digital Curriculum

Please join the Alliance for a webinar designed to help educators and leaders shift curriculum, and instruction into both a digital age and the age of college- and career-ready standards. For this webinar, the Alliance will use Google Hangout On Air technology.

Making the shift to a digitally rich curriculum that meets today’s higher, college- and career-ready standards is no easy task. Educators are confronted with choices that range from packaged curriculum with integrated assessment and professional development, state-developed warehouses, and teacher-curated and teacher-created “do-it-yourself” options. At the same time, some teachers find that so-called “digital” resources are little more than electronic worksheets. How can leaders ensure quality and at the same time provide students with a personalized, engaging learning experience?
