Education Organizations Provide the Tennessee Digital Resources Library Free


Nashville, TN - The Tennessee School Boards Association, in partnership with the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents (TOSS), the Tennessee Educational Technology Association (TETA), Tennessee Book Company, and Thrivist, has launched the Tennessee Digital Resources Library (TDRL) today, making digital educational content available free.

“We are very excited about the launch of the digital library and believe it will be a tremendous resource for our educators and students. The library was developed by Tennessee teachers curating digital learning resources for Tennessee high school courses that are aligned to Tennessee standards for Tennessee students,” TSBA Executive Director Dr. Tammy Grissom said.

The Tennessee Digital Resources Library was created because TSBA and its partners wanted to embrace the potential offered by digital technology for the sharing of content in the classrooms of Tennessee and engage students with a delivery method that inspires their natural curiosity and parallels the world in which they function outside the classroom. Boards of education spend a significant amount of money on textbooks that are often obsolete even before they reach our students. By utilizing these free, modifiable learning resources and making them available on iTunes U, Boards can use textbook money on devices and technology infrastructure. The Tennessee Digital Resources Library is designed to help school districts use and share open educational resources, which are aligned to Tennessee standards thus helping our teachers as they deliver content in the classrooms.
