If the new generation of tech-savvy students isn't enough reason to embrace digital learning, then the rise of ESSA and online state assessments should be. Although the implementation of online assessments is no surprise, successfully delivering these tests is still a challenge.
Your school has a lot of technology requirements to meet and probably has a lot of questions. SHI is here to help you answer them all, including:
- How many devices does your school need?
- How will you protect the devices and private information?
- Where will the budget for the technology come from?
- Will your IT staff be able to implement the technology once you have it?
- Will it happen in time?
- How do you make sure your existing technology isn't wasted?
- What long-term value will your school get from these technology investments?
There are many questions, but one thing is certain: schools will need technology to help prepare their students for college, career, and life.
The most important decision isn't whether or not your school is going digital.
Think about these two questions:
- If you weren't limited, how would your school use digital education?
- What are you capable of doing now?
The answers will determine if you're going to transform your school by creating a digital learning environment, or if you're going to simply meet the online assessment requirements and get the most long-term value from your investments.
