As school districts across the country face school closings, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is launching the SETDA Coalition for eLearning on edWeb.net. The SETDA Coalition for eLearning focuses state leaders, affiliates, and partners in collective action around teaching and learning in the digital age. edWeb will be hosting the new Essential Elements for eLearning community of practice and a series of edWebinars to help disseminate an ever-evolving compilation of rapidly developing resources around eLearning for state education agencies and school districts. The program is free thanks to support from AT&T Aspire.
edWeb.net is excited to announce that The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) will be sponsoring Professional Learning for Effective Practice: Leveraging Title IIA, a free professional learning community on edWeb that provides an online forum where district and state Title IIA leaders can learn about the effective implementation of the federal Title IIA program. The community will highlight program implementation best practices and share examples of evidence-based professional learning opportunities and exemplary professional learning programs at the state and district levels. Potential topics include evidence-based professional learning, creative use of monies, the coaching role, the do’s and don’ts of spending, and more.
If the workday of an adult typically requires seamless broadband access, then it’s reasonable that today’s students need the same access during their school day. After all, schools are preparing them for their future careers, which will include using some aspect of online technology. Recently, SETDA released State K-12 Broadband Leadership: Driving Connectivity, Access and Student Success, which looks at the current state of broadband access and how states are supporting teachers and students.
This edWebinar will be the launch of SETDA’s latest resource, State K-12 Broadband Leadership 2019: Driving Connectivity, Access and Ensuring Student Success.
This edWebinar discusses what inclusive classrooms, employing accessibility, look like from the standpoint of reading, writing, math and communication.

SETDA’s latest research, Navigating the Digital Shift 2018: Broadening Student Learning Opportunities, highlights how state policies are supporting the transformation to digital learning. Many states provide guidance for the implementation of digital materials in districts to help ensure that they are available to all learners. However, some districts may not have any state guidance at all. In a recent webinar, presenters from Idaho and Pennsylvania discussed how state and district leadership support digital learning opportunities and implement digital materials.
