Using digital curricula effectively is much more complicated than just firing up a laptop in class. As more schools and districts turn to digital materials for education, experts say it’s important to emphasize teacher training and professional development and to be deliberate in how those materials are used. School and district leaders need to determine how to organize and evaluate materials and integrate them into the curriculum appropriately.
