North Carolina Leadership in Personalized and Digital Learning

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 | 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM | Friday Institute

The NCLPDL program coaches and guides principals through the creation of personalized and digital learning environments in their schools using a year-long blended program of face-to-face sessions followed by a series of online activities. Principals are engaged in real-world, value-added activities that are part of a proven cycle of capacity building for their students, teachers, and communities—activities that are essential to the school’s transformation. As participants are led and coached through capacity-building activities for their own schools, they are simultaneously building their capacity as school leaders to:

  • Understand why personalized and digital learning is important for students and explore models to support this learning.

  • Create clear goals for personalized and digital learning in their schools.

  • Establish a culture in their school community that supports personalized and digital learning.

  • Engage stakeholder support for personalized and digital learning.

  • Identify digital tools and curriculum that support personalized and digital learning in their schools.

  • Develop systems that support the transition to personalized and digital learning.

  • Use digital tools and social media for their own professional practice and lifelong learning so that they can model the use of blended and digital learning.

  • Support teachers’ transition to personalized and digital learning with ongoing professional development and evaluation.

  • Understand the infrastructure needs personalized and digital learning programs require.

  • Develop and implement a Personalized and Digital Learning Road Map for their schools.

  • Participate in a network of principals implementing personalized and digital learning.

  • Learn to use data for program evaluation and continuous improvement.
