With the help of technology, teachers and schools across the country can transform their classrooms into collaborative learning spaces where teachers help students drive their own learning and better prepare for college and careers. This brief is a guide for teachers and schools to learn best practices on incorporating technology and data into personalized learning. It stems from a May 2017 meeting of educators and policy makers from across the South cohosted by digiLEARN and the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) and features case studies from across the country that highlight key strategies teachers and administrators can use to bring education into the digital age.
digiLEARN released the Strategic Policy Playbook: Driving Innovation in Education for All Students to highlight the State of North Carolina's successful policy initiative to ensure equity in educational opportunity across the state. As a result of this process, any student, regardless of his/her address or economic circumstances could access the same academic courses, materials, and highly qualified teachers as any other student in the state. This policy brief, prepared by entangled.solutions and through generous support from the Carnegie Foundation of New York describes North Carolina's successful effort to effect lasting change in education policy. It provides a primer to be used by other states and localities seeking to affect similar lasting change in education policy or in any other policy sector.
