The Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers and Administrators are a new initiative in North Carolina this year. The NC Department of Public Instruction has developed a set of standards for both teachers and leaders which will measure their mastery of digital-age learning mindsets and skills. These standards can be reviewed for teachers and administrators on this website.
Over the course of the next several years, N-CCS will be implementing the DLCs for Teachers and Administrators in a staggered approach, beginning with the Content and Instruction Canvas Module for Teachers and Administrators, with administrators also completing the Vision and Strategy competency this year.
N-CCS plans to support its staff with monthly professional development opportunities for both teachers and administrators, as well as through asynchronous work in an online Canvas course on the DLCs. Teachers and administrators will all develop artifacts that demonstrate their capacity to be a digital-age teacher or leader.
Supporting our district this year are our Digital Learning Facilitators. A Digital Learning Facilitator is an instructional technology coach who works with school staff in developing, enacting, and assessing the implementation of vision and strategies for digital teaching and learning. These individuals have been instrumental in leading the implementation of the Digital Learning Competencies, spending a lot of time preparing for the year this summer. We are so fortunate to have such a strong and capable group of instructional leaders to support personalized learning with technology for all students in our district.
