Today, Digital Learning Now!

The following four weeks will focus on elements related to providers and instruction. The series will close out by featuring government and infrastructure.
Below is the first video of the series: “Element #1: Student Eligibility.” All videos were filmed in our digital studio and feature Alliance President and DLN Cochair Bob Wise and Digital Luminary Tom Vander Ark. The discussion between Mr. Vander Ark and Gov. Wise will provide context and greater understanding of the highlighted element and its application for U.S. schools and students.
