Transforming teaching and school funding for the digital future
Today Fordham is releasing the latest installments in our Creating Sound Policy for Digital Learning series, offering a glimpse at what the digital future may hold for teachers and school finance—and addressing potential pitfalls on the way to realizing that promise. In one paper, “Teachers in the Age of Digital Instruction,” Bryan and Emily Hassel argue that the growth of digital learning should greatly alter the roles and compensation of educators—although not necessarily at the expense of teachers—by “unbundling” their responsibilities. In the other, “School Finance in the Digital-Learning Era,” Paul T. Hill warns that the outdated way we fund schools threatens to cripple innovation in online education. Taken together, today’s publications present an appealing, 21st-century approach to education—a future threatened by our existing approaches to teaching and school funding. Be sure to check out Flypaper over the coming days as experts post their reactions to the release; for now, download and explore the papers yourself.
