Live Blog Chat: Bringing Digital Differentiation to All Subjects

Technology supported instruction is now the norm in many districts, but that doesn’t mean digital adoption has been the same across different academic subjects. Teachers focused on math and literacy have a sizeable number of high-quality, adaptive curricula to choose from and can use those resources to personalize education for students. But educators in the sciences and social studies often have to cobble together their own courses by incorporating stand-along digital resources into existing curricula.

Our two experts will offer advice on how educators in different subjects can get the most out of the digital tools and curricula.
