Navigating the Digital Shift

SETDA has been a leading organization in advocating for the shift from print to digital content by making our members, policy makers and the broader education audience aware of digital content’s advantages and celebrating those states where policy changes and other initiatives have jump-started the shift to digital for students and teachers through the state. Since 2015, SETDA has conducted a survey and independent research for all 50 states and Guam regarding state policies and guidelines for the acquisition and implementation of instructional materials. In addition, SETDA interviewed educators from a variety of educational and governmental organizations, state instructional materials leads and state procurement officers. The Navigating the Digital Shift publications strive to inform all stakeholders including educators, non-traditional instructional materials publishers, technology developers, and investors on the increasingly supportive environment of states with respect to innovation around digital instructional materials.
