About This Presentation
North Carolina’s education system is transitioning from an industrial age, one-size-fits-all system to a personalized, digital-age education that leads to success in college, careers, and civic life. Having already made significant progress with statewide and district initiatives, much work remains. The Friday Institute at NC State University – in collaboration with policymakers, education leaders, practitioners, and other partners – is developing the North Carolina Digital Learning Plan to accelerate the educational transition. This presentation will focus on the findings and recommendations in the areas of Leadership, Professional Learning, Content & Instruction, Technology Infrastructure & Devices, and Data & Assessment.
