Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer, has been selected to serve on the Friday Institute’s Digital Learning Plan Human Capacity Advisory as a representative for district and school leaders that have demonstrated progress in transitioning schools to digital learning. The Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at NC State University, in collaboration with policymakers, education leaders, practitioners, business leaders and other partners from throughout the State, has been asked to develop the North Carolina Digital Learning Plan to continue and accelerate North Carolina’s progress.
The goal of the advisory is to represent the voices of districts and their needs in the development of a state plan to address the shift to a digital learning paradigm. The human capacity advisory is comprised of district leaders, school leaders, instructional technology facilitators, medai specialists, and teachers. The driving questions for the human capacity advisory include:
- How will North Carolina enhance the capacity of all its teachers, school leaders, and district leaders to fully utilize digital resources and meet the new digital learning standards?
- How will North Carolina ensure that there will be a sustained pipeline of teachers and administrators prepared to support the K-12 digital learning transition?
