Finding the Balance: Ensuring Quality in the Shift to a Digital Curriculum


The Alliance for Excellent Education Invites You to Attend a Project 24 Webinar

Finding the Balance: Ensuring Quality in the Shift to a Digital Curriculum

Peg Cagle, Interim Faculty Member, Vanderbilt University
Jeremy Macdonald, Integrated Technology Systems Coordinator, Bend-La Pine Schools (OR)
Pam Moran, EdD, Superintendent, Albemarle County Public Schools (VA)
Mary Ann Wolf, CEO, Wolf Ed

Please join the Alliance for a webinar designed to help educators and leaders shift curriculum, and instruction into both a digital age and the age of college- and career-ready standards. For this webinar, the Alliance will use Google Hangout On Air technology.

Making the shift to a digitally rich curriculum that meets today’s higher, college- and career-ready standards is no easy task. Educators are confronted with choices that range from packaged curriculum with integrated assessment and professional development, state-developed warehouses, and teacher-curated and teacher-created “do-it-yourself” options. At the same time, some teachers find that so-called “digital” resources are little more than electronic worksheets. How can leaders ensure quality and at the same time provide students with a personalized, engaging learning experience?

This live discussion with three of the Project 24 team of experts will explore the issues around balancing quality and flexibility. Jeremy Macdonald will share his experience with teacher-curated curriculum and how the digital shift is working in Bend-LaPine schools as the district prepares for a major deployment of mobile devices. Peg Cagle, who is on sabbatical from teaching math in Los Angeles Unified School District and fresh from spending a year on Capitol Hill, will explore the research basis for both teacher-developed and tried-and-tested approaches in mathematics. Pam Moran will look at ways to find balanced approaches and talk about what she is looking for as a superintendent in a digitally-enriched curriculum. As an example, the group will talk about the different ways “flipping the classroom” has been interpreted and implemented and what has been learned about ensuring quality. Mary Ann Wolf will moderate the discussion. Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
