The K-12 Digital Learning Revolution Program is the work of 65+ IMS Global Learning Consortium member school districts and state departments of education—including 44% of the largest 25 school districts and 23% of the top 100 districts in the US—with substantive experience and knowledge about what it takes to implement and scale integrated learning technologies.
 
It’s called the rEvolution program because it enables both a straightforward evolution to digital and provides the foundation for making significant—revolutionary—advancements in teaching and learning.
 
Your district does not need to be an IMS member to be a part of the digital learning revolution. But you do need to make the commitment to purchasing IMS certified products in order to establish a plug-and-play ecosystem. We're here to help! Connect with an IMS K-12 Institutional Program Manager to discuss your district’s needs. Or explore the program tiers below to learn more.
 
"Districts who want to improve the usability of their educational technology should consider the IMS K-12 Digital Learning Revolution Program. Each tier is customized to the needs of a district and the program continues to evolve as a district becomes more advanced in their use of open standards. IMS Global Learning Consortium provides the support and resources to ensure successful implementation at all levels of the program. The opportunity to network with other districts is also highly beneficial."
—Barbara Nesbitt, Ph.D., executive director of technology, School District of Pickens County
