NC State is hosting the national kickoff of a bold new effort to help school districts make the most of digital learning. The Future Ready Summit Feb. 11-12 at the Friday Institute is helping school districts in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia create their own digital learning plans. NC State is partnering with the the Alliance of Excellent Education, the White House and the U.S. Department of Education on 12 summits across the nation this spring.
Mary Ann Wolf, director of digital learning programs at the Friday Institute, will moderate several of the summits. She took time to explain digital learning technology’s potential for students.
- Why is this a critical time to focus on digital learning?
Digital learning has the potential to increase opportunities to meet the needs of each student.
Schools can accelerate the transition to digital learning by taking advantage of growing access to the Internet and technology, using data and content systems that identify and make recommendations for what students need, and choosing instructional strategies that take advantage of the digital content, tools and resources. Here’s why this digital learning transition is critical.
