Selecting Digital Content and Curriculum

The foundation of this session will be the Guide to Selecting Digital Content and Curriculum that the Center for Digital Education developed in partnership with the US Department of Education with support from McGraw Hill. Superintendents will receive a link to the guide and the PowerPoint so that they may use these resources in their respective district.

Superintendents will be introduced to the recommended processes for transitioning to a digital curriculum within their districts while still utilizing print materials. We will cover how to get started with the visioning for this transformation including which stakeholders should be included. We will also talk about how to select high quality digital content and how to prepare teachers and leaders for this transformation. Dr. Ray will also address competency based criteria (using iNACOL's work) and social emotional learning criteria (using CASTLE's work) when selecting materials and how not to overwhelm schools with these implementations.


Upon conclusion of this session, superintendents will know how to develop and implement a plan for digital content and curriculum that supports competency-based learning while addressing SEL.
