This edWebinar will be the launch of SETDA’s latest resource, State K-12 Broadband Leadership 2019: Driving Connectivity, Access and Ensuring Student Success.
During a tour of updates to SETDA’s Digital Instructional Materials Acquisition Policies for States (DMAPS), which showcases state policies in support of digital materials, Christine Fox, Deputy Executive Director for SETDA, discussed new features like professional development information. In addition, Dr. Michael Nelson, Director of Curriculum and Assessments for Coeur d’Alene Public Schools (ID), explained in the presentation “Navigating the Digital Shift: Leveraging Quality Instructional Materials for Learning,” how his schools are shifting to an OER (open educational resources) environment as part of their overall plan to improve individual student achievement.
This edWebinar discusses what inclusive classrooms, employing accessibility, look like from the standpoint of reading, writing, math and communication.
In this edWebinar, learn about SETDA’s updated and expanded Digital Instructional Materials Acquisition Policies for States (DMAPS).
Questioning the quality of instructional materials isn’t new to the digital education era. But with the rise of OER, growing use of supplemental resources over core textbooks, and the increasing flexibility of state funding, more purchasing decisions have moved to the school and district level. Thus, there is the potential for more disparity in the quality of materials from school to school. Confronted by concerns from their members that schools and districts might not be buying the best quality resources, SETDA updated its Guide to Quality Instructional Materials, which was introduced during the edWebinar “From Print to Digital: Discover and Implement Quality Instructional Materials for Learning.” The emphasis of the Guide, said Christine Fox, Deputy Executive Director for SETDA, is not on critiquing specific content but in helping educators develop an ongoing review process and giving content providers a concrete outline for how the process should work.
In this edWebinar, learn about SETDA’s expanded Guide to Quality Instructional Materials, an online toolkit to support the vetting and curation of quality instructional materials for all learners.
