Review several statewide initiatives that promote digital learning. Engage in active discussion of how participation in these initiatives supports digital teaching and learning in schools as well as collaboration among schools. National programs, such as Future Ready, #GoOpen, and ConnectED; along with statewide initiatives, such as NH Digital Resources Consortium, New Hampshire Educators Online, and the NH School Connectivity Initiative will be discussed. Explore how their current school collaborative efforts might be enhanced through participation in one or more of these initiatives, and how these kinds of initiatives connect to the overall move to competency based education in New Hampshire. You are encouraged to bring a laptop with wireless connectivity to access online resources, but it is not a requirement for participation.
