Heather Mullins spent the last two days sharing and learning with digital leaders from around our state at the Friday Institute’s Coaching Digital Learning Institute. The theme of this year’s institute is: You are a superhero! The sessions and resources from this Institute are amazing. Check out those resources here. Resources include tons of apps, tools, information about 1:1, blended learning tools, and much, much more.
The Coaching Digital Learning Institute (formerly the Technology Leader Institute) offered by NC State’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, is designed to support K-12 educators’ digital transition needs. We can all agree that while a growing number of schools and districts across North Carolina are making the transition to technology-enabled learning, technology does not drive these initiatives – teaching and learning always need to be at the forefront. Instructional technology facilitators, media coordinators, instructional specialists, and technology-driven educators and mentoring staff that have taken the lead in implementing digital transitions in their schools and districts are the unsung heroes of these initiatives, and honoring that we have a superhero twist added to this year’s event.
This institute is designed to build your capacity and to enhance your professional development, practice, and add mobile and web based tools to expand your tool box in your digitally expanding educational environment.
Participants will gain capacity building practices to…
- Facilitate and inspire learning and creativity
- Design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments
- Model digital age work and learning
- Promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility
- Engage in professional growth and leadership
