As you consider purchasing digital content and devices, I suggest the following questions to help you plan for an effective implementation of digital content.
1. What digital content is needed? (e.g., eBooks, digital audio, databases)
2. How will the content and/or devices be managed? (e.g., policies, procedures)
3. How many students and teachers have devices they can use to access digital content?4. Have you answered these questions prior to purchasing devices?
