In this informative video, a team of Office DEPOT experts discusses the considerations when shifting to digital in the K-12 sector, with an emphasis on cost, functionality and school district utilization. According to a survey by the Center for Digital Education, "Nearly two-thirds of K-12 district leaders say that creating an integrated learning environment using interoperable technology is a priority." Dramatic changes in recent years have created an urgency to shift to digital, primarily driven by the testing model mandates. This shift requires a major financial obligation during the next two years. Solid decision-making is also a must as districts move forward. In this video, we cover 1:1 and Bring You Own Device (BYOD) programs, along with Internet access at school and beyond. Digital decisions require a collaborative approach involving all stakeholders because the classroom of the future supports blended learning for better student outcomes. Staff professional development is a critical link to ensure the full capabilities of the equipment is utilized.(filmed 06/10/2014)
