To prepare future-ready students, schools must embrace and seize technology’s potential to make their learning experiences more engaging. Instruction can come through a variety of digital pathways that students can access anywhere, any time, and at any pace.
Digital integration means access to the right device for learning, the use of digital portfolios, and the adoption of virtual learning models (such as flipped classrooms, blended learning, and online courses). It also means incorporating digital resources (such as electronic textbooks and online collaborative tools).
Texas High Performance Schools Consortium and Consortium Associate districts are leading the way in digital integration. They are committed to seamlessly integrating digital devices, global connections, and flexible, student-centered environments. See what 21st century learning looks like in these districts.

To make it easier for schools and teachers to integrate digital resources into learning, TASA has engaged educators from across Texas to build TASA on iTunes U, a library of digital resource collections, organized by course. Teachers may access the collections — which currently number 62 — for free. Each one includes course-enhancing digital resources that teams of experienced teachers and content specialists have curated. Learn more about TASA on iTunes U.
