There’s a quiet revolution taking place in our nation’s schools: the demise of print textbooks and other paper-based resources which are gradually being replaced by digital content. The revolution is fueled by 1:1 initiatives, WiFi bandwidth improvements, and the drive to personalize learning – and it’s placing powerful technology in the hands of students for everyday use at school and at home.
Educators around the country are using varied, up-to-date content from multiple sources including Open Education Resources (OER) and other free content to motivate, engage and empower their students. School districts are leveraging digital content to realize cost savings, prepare students for online assessments, provide learning experiences outside the traditional school day, and give students opportunities for cross-curricular collaboration.
In this webinar, Jeff Meyer, classroom teacher, district technology director, and Product Specialist for Learning.com explored:
• The most widely-used free digital alternatives to print textbooks and resources
• The benefits of implementing OER
• Tips for moving to digital content
This recorded webinar is designed for all K-12 educators interested in using more digital content with their students, including classroom teachers, administrators, and library media specialists as well as curriculum leaders and developers. No matter where you are in the process of transitioning from print to digital content, you don’t want to miss this session. Watch for the latest ideas about making the switch!
