K-12 Revolution Program: What Tier Is Your District?

K-12 Communities & Playbook | Digital Learning Revolution Program | Innovative Leadership Networks | K-12 Playbook Resources | K-12 Webinar Series

The K-12 Digital Learning Revolution Program empowers school districts of all sizes and needs to evolve their digital ecosystem for a better return on learning from their investments in educational technology. It starts with the commitment to IMS certified products then evolves as a district advances its IT infrastructure and instructional practices to support more revolutionary approaches to teaching and learning. 
 
Can’t decide with tier your organization belongs in? Contact IMS Global and we’ll schedule a time to discuss where your organization is, help you develop a roadmap to move forward and provide detailed feedback on the IMS Global conformance certification status for the top 10 software applications used in your district.
