The availability of digital materials has exploded with the popularity of mobile devices. Based on current trends it is a natural evolution; digital materials will be included into all levels of education . Subsequently, it will be imperative that consideration be given to the integration of digital materials. To begin the integration of digital materials, Florida State statute section 1006.282 (2011) established a pilot program for the transition to electronic and digital instructional material to facilitate the transition to instructional materials from printed to an electronic or a digital format for K-12 public schools. By the 2015-2016 school year, the goal is for Florida school districts to spend at least 50% of classroom material funding on digital materials and to achieve a student mobile device ratio of 1:1 by 2017-2018 school year.
