Designing a practically paperless classroom

“A must-read for all who desire to make technology integration a priority in their school.”

–Amie Brown, Gifted ELA Teacher, Armuchee Middle School, GA

Los Angeles (January 27, 2012) Imagine kids carrying mobile devices, where they can access information from anywhere at any time, instead of bulging backpacks. Transitioning from print to one-to-one digital learning in the midst of economic challenges is not an educator’s impossible dream, it’s definitely achievable, especially when kids use their own device, according to Corwin’s new Digital Learning for All, NOW: A School Leader’s Guide for 1:1 on a Budget.

This breakthrough guide, written by educational technology expert Jonathan P. Costa, Sr., shows educators how to affordably start now, to make the shift to one-to-one computing, transforming schools into digital learning centers. He outlines a step-by-step road map of immediate solutions for overcoming budget and systems barriers, providing field-tested strategies showing how to:

  • Acquire and pay for required equipment
  • Save money by utilizing open source, crowd sourcing, and Bring Your Own Device
  • Align instruction, assessment, curriculum, and professional development for a 21st century learning environment

Not only does the book provide both foundational concepts and “in the trenches” applications of those big ideas, a content-rich companion website provides adaptable tools, step-by-step guidance, resources, and access to an online interactive community. Because Digital Learning for All, NOWwill help educators make digital learning a reality on a district-wide scale that is supported at every level and prepares students for life and work in the 21st century, it belongs on every educator’s shelf.

“This book moves past the excuses and into a plan for legitimate and practical technology use.

If you buy just one book this year, this is the one…”
