Kentucky Board of Education hears calls for furthering digital learning
A draft report presented to the Kentucky Board of Education offers ambitious goals for online and digital learning in the state's public schools. The draft, Digital Learning 2020, was presented at the board's meeting in Frankfort on Wednesday. It calls for ensuring all students in Kentucky have access to digital learning, gravitating toward all-digital textbooks and teaching materials, and looking at options such as linking funding to student performance in online courses.
David Cook, director of the education department's innovation division, told board members that digital learning is about not only at-home access, but also getting schools to consider more online options.
