Presented by Jonathan Costa, Director of School and Program Services, EDUCATION CONNECTION
Nothing is so certainly written in the educational book of fate as the end of the textbook as the primary focus of educational content. Digital resources are potentially cheaper, more flexible, more up-to-date, and more reflective of the kind of materials that all learners will need to become proficient with as they seek to prepare themselves for life and learning beyond school. Yet, even though this reality is commonly accepted (even in districts where all students have devices) there most often are still too many other barriers to make the transition to digital content. If you are looking for strategies to build your district's capacity to go through this process and replace any textbook with digital alternatives, join us for our community’s next webinar. Jonathan Costa will cover these topics in session one of a two-part series on migrating to digital content:
- Making the case for getting out of the textbook business
- Determining content organizational frames of reference
- Overcoming Barriers to the Digital Transition
- Choosing the right electronic storage, hosting, and access options (Part 1)
Attendees will get the most out of this webinar series if they come with a course or a subject area that they would like to pursue for textbook replacement in mind. Join Jonathan on April 29 for part one of a step-by-step guide for dumping print textbooks.
