Summit on transition to digital classrooms

Discovery Education and Digital Promise, a nonprofit organization chartered by Congress to spur innovation in education, in conjunction with Connect2Compete, ERDI, ISTE, NCERT and other leading national and state-level education organizations, today launched the inaugural Future@Now: Transition to Digital Classrooms conference to discuss the state of digital learning and its impact on college and workforce readiness.

The goal of the Future@Now: Transition to Digital Classrooms conference is to raise awareness about the benefits of digital learning and celebrate the successes of districts that have successfully deployed digital textbooks in their classrooms.

ISTE, Connect2Compete, Digital Promise and Discovery Education have announced that beginning this month, educators will be given trial access to Discovery Education’s Techbook™ digital textbooks featuring K-12 science; physics, chemistry and biology; and middle school social studies.
