Digital Days Conference Brings Digital Learning Fun to N-CCS

Digital Days Course HomepageN-CCS held its Digital Days conference for N-CCS staff for the spring semester in January, at the semester break, and was an involved day of learning for all of our teachers!

This Digital Days was designed completely using our Learning Management System, Canvas, where all of our session materials were housed and accessed.  Additionally, many attendees chose to engage in the interactive Digital Days Game, where participants earned badges for completing certain tasks in their sessions and throughout the course of the day.

33 sessions were offered to teachers and staff at this Digital Days conference, where presenters were welcomed both internally and externally, including the Regional Digital Teaching and Learning Consultant from the NC Department of Public Instruction, Donna Murray.
