Why do teachers in California love Digital Theatre+?

"Not every class has an opportunity to leave campus and go on a field trip to experience theatre first hand. DT+ is the next best thing. No matter where the student lives, they can access top-notch theatre productions and other captivating materials. In addition, DT+ allows teachers to "flip" the classroom. Students can engage with the material outside of class, leaving lesson time for important collaborative and creative work. There is also the opportunity to engage with other teachers across the campus and truly integrate theatre into all disciplines of learning. The teaching resources on the platform are terrific and there are more of them every day."

- Marjorie Treger, Theatre Resource Teacher, San Diego Unified School District 

"When students enter a theatre class, it's common that they've never had the opportunity to see theatre before. I've used Digital Theatre+ to introduce them to careers in theatre, styles of theatre, and theatre history. I can now say that 100% of my students have seen at least one play. The fact that we can all watch a play together at the same time, or I can assign scenes for students to watch on their own, makes this a very useful tool."

- Jen Nocera, Head of Department, Victor Valley High School

"[...] having access to all these productions and documentaries means that knowledge is shared. Teachers and students become scholars during class discussions."

- Saint Joseph High School
