Digital transformation is about adopting powerful new ways of teaching and learning at its core, but technology is what enables this shift to occur. Students need devices that can access the web, as well as rich new apps and tools for creating, sharing, and discovering content.

And thanks to new E-rate and other public funding opportunities, schools have ample opportunity to implement equipment and service upgrades that support and promote digital learning.
From implementing the Common Core, to juggling different age groups and skill levels, to delivering high quality instruction in the face of growing class sizes, today’s K-12 math educators face an array of challenges. Many math teachers are turning to digital tools to support them in facing these challenges, but navigating the world of edtech can also be difficult and time consuming.
