How Digital Curriculum Helps Engage and Motivate Students to Persist and Progress

By Jean Sharp, Vice President of Content Development

Digital curriculum can be an empowering experience for these students. In traditional teacher-centered classrooms, non-traditional students often indicate that they have little control over their learning. In a digital curriculum environment, however, they are often better able to make choices over the path and pace of their learning. Digital content simply affords options for non-traditional students that often better meet their learning needs.
