High Expectations for Evidence-Based Transformations to Digital Learning

Across the district, teachers, administrators, and students are expected to show progress toward the district vision. The district has established metrics for gauging such progress and is working across the district to monitor progress and to use evidence-based decision making to ensure that technologies are implemented in ways that advance the vision.

District leaders analyze research studies on the potential impact of digital leaning on student attainment of the learning goals, thus forming a knowledge base on digital learning. They also document various models of evidence-based reasoning and models of change management. District leaders carefully review the knowledge base on digital learning resulting from their investigations. Based on that evidence, they envision a time when instructional decisions are informed by this knowledge base. District leaders develop plans for building the capacity of education professionals to use the knowledge base to inform decisions. They pilot projects where teachers collaborate to identify and close gaps in student learning through digital learning. District leaders set high expectations for the district, schools, and classrooms to adopt the types of digital learning shown to be effective in meeting the learning needs of all students to achieve academic and 21st Century learning goals. To ensure success, the district provides the conditions essential for local, evidence-based decision making related to digital learning.
