No longer are the days when a teacher simply looks to the textbook for their curriculum. Districts are dedicating time, money, and resources to curriculum development, planning, and alignment. With this focus on curriculum also comes the need for teachers to look elsewhere for their classroom content. Teachers are now more than ever creating and sharing content, most of which is digital. But before district leaders ask their teachers to turn away from textbooks and transition into the digital world, they must first prepare them for this transition. The six districts that make up the Digital Content Consortium recognize the value in first laying a strong foundation because as many of us know, creating quality digital content is more than just a Google search away.
