We are entering our 5th week and there has been good participation so far. We expect to have a lot of good information from this course for our Strategic Technology Plan.
The TRC is heading up an initiative to foster digital learning in the classroom. We have gathered stakeholders from across the district including Principals, Teachers, and Library Media Specialists. We are organizing stakeholders into two groups, Core and Advisory. The core members will participate in a 7 week free course (which began on April 8th) called Digital Learning Transitions, with the objective of developing a set of goals as well as an action plan for digital learning in the district. The core group consists of 12 members plus myself and Liane St Laurent. The advisory group consists of 42 members. A full description of the course can be accessed online at http://dlt.mooc-ed.org/course_info/outline. We hope to establish the MSD Digital Learning Network as a standards consortium and support group to the district as well as a springboard to student ELO engagement opportunities such as student led help desk.
