The Friday Institute’s Professional Learning and Leadership Collaborative has created a series of learning opportunities designed to build educator capacity to address diverse learning needs across the educational system. We have designed online and blended learning programs for students, teachers, instructional coaches, principals and higher education faculty/staff. Programs include:
Digital Promise: Micro-credentials to Support Learner Variability in the Classroom
The Friday Institute for Educational Innovation and Digital Promise Global’s Learner Variability Project collaborated to create a set of micro-credentials for educators as they design learning experiences specifically for each of their diverse learners.
EdNC: From fear to understanding: the parent’s journey through their child’s learning differences
Parents are in the best position to begin a child’s education around his or her learning difference. At the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, the learning differences team created a parent’s handbook designed to equip parents to do just that.
EdNC: Teachers eager to gain better understanding of learning differences
The Friday Institute has helped develop a Massive Online Open Course for Educators (MOOC-Ed) that K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, instructional support teams and administrators can take to supplement their understanding of learning differences and adopt a common vocabulary around everyday struggles in their classrooms.
