Mapping Digital Instructional Materials Procurement

Mapping Digital Instructional Materials Procurement

The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) has compiled a free database of the policies and practices around how US states as well as Guam and the Mariana Islands are buying, funding and implementing digital instructional materials for K-12 schools. 

The database includes a wealth of policies, state trends and district exemplars.  In addition, SETDA has an hour-long webinar available to walk through the research. 

SETDA asked representatives of all 52 regions to answer a number of questions around their practices. Among the results: Only 14 of those 52 areas have "dedicated funds" for digital instructional materials." 

All the details are here.
