State Board Approves Grants To Advance Digital Teaching And Learning

North Carolina's efforts to advance digital-age teaching and learning in the state's public schools are getting a boost from a new grant initiative aimed at supporting local districts in the development and dissemination of innovative models for digital learning.
Under an initial round of grants approved by the State Board of Education last week, 30 school districts and one charter school will share about $1.38 million targeted to better harness technology for instruction and student learning. The Digital Learning Initiative grants, most awarded at the maximum of $50,000 each, will be used by districts this school year for planning or showcasing promising approaches to digital teaching and learning. Of the 31 grantees, 21 are designated for planning and 10 for showcase purposes. The grants were selected from a total of 61 applications.  Read more
