Earlier this year, the Alabama State Board of Education (SBOE) approved a set of education standards in the areas of Digital Literacy and Computer Science (DLCS) that makes Alabama an early adopter in establishing a statewide digital learning and computer science standards framework.

Last Thursday, the SBOE received its first recommendations for adoption of textbooks for DLCS learning.

The digital literacy and computer science textbook recommendations are now available on the Alabama State Department of Education’s website.
Additionally, examination copies of the textbooks being considered for adoption are available for public review at:

  • Troy University Dothan; Wallace Community College in Hanceville
  • University of Alabama-Huntsville
  • Jacksonville State University (Houston Cole)
  • Mobile Public Library, Mobile
  • Alabama Southern Community College
  • Thomasville
  • The University of Alabama (McLure), Tuscaloosa
The SBOE is scheduled to vote on the DLCS Textbook Committee’s recommendations on Thursday, Nov. 8.
