Eleven school districts in Region 7 applied and received a Digital Learning Grant for $380,000 dollars to provide professional development to 120 teachers, leaders, and administrators in the Northwest Region. Newton-Conover had 10 applications, and all ten applicants were accepted out of 180 applicants! This is an incredible honor for these teachers and leaders! The DLA participants will attend six full-day digital learning sessions with some of the most creative and accomplished digital educators in North Carolina. They will learn about using an LMS, blended and online learning, creating high-quality instructional resources, TPACK, gaming in education, and an advanced session on the Google Suite of Tools. Some of these participants may have an opportunity to attend the ISTE Conference in Atlanta, Georgia as well.
Participants from Newton-Conover include: Geoff Crosson, Jody Dixon, Jamie Frye, Cindy Geddes, Jennifer Ingle, Jessica Luby, Amanda McRary, Heather Mullins, David Schouweiler, and Angie Sigmon. Please congratulate these NCCS educators!
