ASCD Community in Action

Everything's Coming Up—Digital!

The following ASCD resources are now just a click away.

EL's Digital Edition

ASCD members look forward to receiving Educational Leadership every month, and now we've found a way to make its delivery even faster—and richer. As each print issue mails, ASCD members and subscribers can also link to the digital edition.

The new digital edition offers the full-color experience of the print issue but with additional features:

  • Search: The digital EL is fully searchable.
  • Link: Every URL is clickable.
  • Share: You can e-mail a page to a colleague or post it online.
  • Download: Download Google Gears, and you can save a copy of the digital EL to your hard drive.
  • Zoom: You can use the zoom feature to enlarge images and text.
  • Find: Go to Members, log in for the full version.

Did you miss our e-mails about the September and October 2009 digital editions? If so, then we may not have your correct e-mail address. You can update your membership account at or call our Service Center at 800-933-ASCD (Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., eastern time). Once your membership and account are up-to-date, you can read all the editions of digital EL.
