Governor to review digital learning proposals

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says his office is going to review a task force's recommendations to use digitally-based programs to improve student achievement.

The Digital Learning Task Force has recommended increasing broadband Internet access at all Georgia schools and encourages educators to try transitioning from textbooks to digital content.

The group also recommended that the state fund an assessment system that would allow students to progress through courses as they master certain standards, rather than having all students progress at the same time.

Director of the task force, John Bailey, says the group is challenging state education officials to embrace "competency-based education and blended learning models."
