"With some schools already announcing they will not reopen normally in the fall, and many others considering their options, educators are hoping to take advantage of the summer to improve on this spring’s sink-or-swim plunge into distance learning.

Say Goodbye to the Digital Revolution

Say Goodbye to the Digital Revolution | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The digital revolution is coming to an end, but many schools aren’t ready to say goodbye. They’re still exploring the possibilities of digitally transforming instruction with technology.
