Take a look into a K-12 classroom. What do you see?
There’s a teacher delivering content from a state-approved textbook. They may have an interactive whiteboard. You may see a slideshow presentation. A few classes may even be powered by a Learning Management System.
Yet these methods, including the LMS, are not fully addressing the needs of students or teachers in 21st century classrooms. There are so many more educational resources that can be harnessed through technology, and in particular, the cloud—that mystical digital place all around us where content, tools, and resources are available anywhere, at any time, from any device. Educators have a desire to create sophisticated and interactive content through the cloud, but they also don’t have the time, tools, or training necessary to develop a digital curriculum. And the LMS, while powerful, still isn’t enough to get the job done.
To that end, SoftChalk teamed up with K-12 educators to develop a white paper addressing the key features that educational curriculum in the cloud must provide to fulfill the needs of educators and their students. Download, 4 Must-Haves for K-12 Districts to Make Digital Curriculum a Success.
We’ll go ahead and give you the four Must-Haves below, but when you download the paper, you’ll be able to dig deeper into the details and have a valuable guide to help you implement a true digital curriculum authoring tool into your district and its classrooms.
- Must-Have 1: Create more time (and provide proper training)
- Must-Have 2: Customization to fit the needs of the division or school
- Must-Have 3: Ensure digital curriculum benefits the classroom level, too
