Tom Vander Ark Receives the Royal Treatment On Digital Learning

Ken Royal

Tom Vander Ark, founder and author of Getting Smart, conducted a podcast interview recently with Scholastic’s Ken Royal on his blog The Royal Treatment. Vander Ark articulates the positive ways technology can transform the classroom to improve learning for all students.
He discusses how his recent book, Getting Smart: How Digital Learning Is Changing the World, outlines three ways technology will change learning:

  1. Customization
  2. Motivation, and
  3. Equalization.

“This shift to digital learning is really historic,” says Vander Ark. This podcast is a great overview to kick off discussion about digital learning at your school or district. Royal says, “I recommend this one as a faculty meeting, administrative council, professional development discussion starter.”
