How States Use Digital Learning in Support of Education Reform

View Webinar

How can states and districts take action to integrate digital learning and technologies into education reform efforts? The co-presenters explore actionable policy and practice ideas that address key education reform goals at all levels.

In a new report funded by the Illinois State Board of Education, Dr. Tom Clark and Dr. Elizabeth Oyer explore the changing landscape of education reform: resources are shifting away from dedicated funding to technology programs, and towards state leaders to innovate.

Thus, state leaders are taking the lead in many aspects of education reform. The presenters assert digital learning solutions have the following key characteristics:

  • Prepare students for the global workforce.
  • Strengthen science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.
  • Improve teacher effectiveness.
  • Offer new models for turning around low-performing schools.
