Show Us the Money
While many of us believe strongly in the benefits of digital learning for students, funding challenges often prevent districts and schools from making the vision of personalized, digital learning a reality in classrooms. We all wish that money were no object, but budgeting is unfortunately an essential component of planning for success.
In our work with the New Jersey Department of Education, we did extensive research on how districts tackle funding challenges. In particular, we looked for districts that had some innovative solutions to funding digital learning initiatives, provide descriptions of the districts and their approaches, and summarize steps districts can take to meet their goals within existing budgets.
Check out the report on New Jersey’s digital learning and assessment portal, and share with us how your district is working to fund your own initiatives.
