Grounded in research on effective professional learning, this program provides access to personalized and sustainable opportunities centered around pedagogy and digital learning with a significant emphasis on strategies that allow participants to apply that knowledge to build capacity among educators, administrators and students in the school.
The program is built upon four pillars:
- Leadership and Culture – Specific areas of focus include leadership, digital citizenship, moral purpose and habits of mind.
- Content and Curriculum – This includes technology tools, models of innovation and strategies for curriculum design.
- Sustainability and Evaluation – Strategies will include train-the-trainer models, professional learning networks, walkthroughs and the use of data to evaluate the effectiveness of the digital learning.
- Connected Educator – Supporting coaches to connect through social media and other opportunities to collaborate with educators from across the country and the world.
