The Digital Promise Research team has worked with school districts in its League of Innovative Schools initiative to create an online tool that suggests resources for helping address common challenges found in education—from kindergarten readiness to school redesign. The resulting Challenge Map covers 36 different challenges, including supporting English language learners, assessing twenty-first century skills, and addressing social–emotional learning. Among the major themes for the Challenge Map are teaching with technology, helping prepare students for college and career, and addressing opportunity gaps. The Challenge Map is openly available on the Digital Promise website. Educators can explore the Challenge Map to discover how these issues play out in different contexts and get connected to ideas and resources from innovative school districts and organizations.
