2014 KS Digital Learning Report

The Kansas State Department of Education is pleased to release this report highlighting aspects of the digital landscape across the state. The technology landscape is evolving at an ever-increasing rate. Districts' broadband needs continue to escalate and new providers and services have been contracted since the 2013 decommissioning of the Kan-Ed network. We are at the advent of expanding growth in the use of digital and open textbooks to support Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, while challenged to meet increasing demands for access to mobile and cloud-based technologies. These are a few of the forces impacting technology planning needs for districts across the state. It is our hope this report will provide some insight and perspective for the field as the work to advance the effective use of technology within Kansas education continues.

Information in this report was collected from Kansas school districts in Dec 2013-January 2014. The data in this report is also intended to provide a catalyst for conversation, sharing, and collaboration around ‘who’s doing what’ across the state. This report represents 210 of the 286 districts in Kansas, or 73%.
