Maintaining Content Standards in a Digital World

document
Summary
Even though non-print-based learning objects have been in the classroom for years, the shift to digital content has gotten more attention lately. One development that's made the difference is the Apple initiative to introduce its iBooks textbooks for iPads, generating a notable amount of buzz. That and President Obama's announcement that he believes every student in every state should have an all-digital curriculum by 2017. The US Department of Education and the Federal Communications Commission have jointly issued a "playbook" to help guide district efforts to prepare for that transition.
Description
Another approach for vetting digital content is crowdsourcing, a practice in use at schools in Georgia and Virginia.

The Georgia Virtual School, which has offered middle and high school-level courses to schools and parents statewide since 2005, uses an amalgam of commercially produced materials that it purchases along with open education resources. All of it adheres to the state's Georgia Performance Standards.
