  • We’ve made a lot of progress. But it’s not enough.
  • Stop and ask yourself. What kind of learning do students – and teachers – need to get there? They need hands-on experiences that keep them engaged, to go deeper into the content so they are ready for higher level science and math. They need real-world experiences. And teachers need just-in-time professional development. One common sense solution to all of these can be found in digital learning.
