Making Digital Curricula Meaningful
This event takes place on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 1 to 2 p.m. ET.
Sponsored by: Amplify Learning
Using digital curricula effectively is much more complicated than just firing up a laptop in class. As more schools and districts turn to digital materials for education, experts say it’s important to emphasize teacher training and professional development and to be deliberate in how it is used. School and district leaders also need to determine how to organize and evaluate materials and integrate them into the curriculum appropriately. Our guests will help educators find and implement digital curricula in the most effective ways possible.
