In the fall of 2012, SETDA released a ground-breaking report, Out of Print: Reimagining the K-12 Textbook in a Digital Age, which documented and provided advice to states and districts on how to manage the ongoing shift from traditional print-based instructional materials to digital content. While the advantages to increasing the use of digital content by students and teachers are significant, the policies and practices associated with a successful transition are still emerging. The purpose of this series of policy briefs is to shine a light on specific policies and practices that we believe are key to keeping efforts to employ digital content in K-12 education on track and on target.
