  • 1. North  Carolina  Learning   Technology  Initiative     (NCLTI)       September  18,  2013   Overview,  Resources,  and    Future  Opportunities   Friday Institute's Digital Learning Collaborative, 2013
  • 2.   Where  is  your  district  in  planning  digital  learning   initiatives?           Respond  using:   *  PollEv.com/studytour      OR     *  Mobile  Phone   Warm  Up:  Poll  Question  #1  
  • 3. In  ONE  word,  what  keeps  you  up  at  night  with   regard  to  digital  teaching  and  learning  in  your   district?         Respond  using:   *  PollEv.com/studytour      OR     *  Mobile  Phone   Warm  Up:  Poll  Question  #2  
  • 4. What  is  NCLTI?   North  Carolina  Learning  Technology  Initiative  (NCLTI)     •  An  overarching  framework  to  planning,  implementing,  and  sustaining   digital  teaching  and  learning  in  schools  and  districts  across  the  state.     •  Planning  guidance,  tools,  and  resources  -­‐  emphasis  on  curriculum  and   instruction  and  not  merely  technology.     •  The  focus  is  NOT  on  devices,  but  rather  on  creating  relevant,   personalized  educational  opportunities.  
  • 5. Why  is  NCLTI  Important?  Rationale...   •  LEA  and  statewide  investments  in  technology  need  to  focus  on   maximizing  and  sustaining  impact  on  teaching  and  learning.   •  An  ongoing,  rigorous,  strategic  planning  process    is  critical  for  success.     •  NCLTI  facilitates  a  comprehensive  approach  to  building  support  for   capacity  within  LEA  and/or  school  digital  learning  initiatives.  
  • 6. Context:  Background   •  NCLTI  is  a  research-­‐based  initiative   •  Built  upon  lessons  learned  from  various  digital  learning,  or  1:1   computing  initiatives  across  NC  and  US     •  It  was  developed  through  public-­‐private  partnership  including  SAS,   GLF,  NCDPI,  FI,  NSP  
  • 7. Context:  Timeline     2007    Learn  &  Earn  Early  College  High  Schools   2008-­‐2011  1:1  Pilot  Study     2009-­‐2011  Planning  support  to  LEAs  through  Golden   LEAF  Foundation  (GLF)   2010-­‐2012  IMPACT  III  and  IV  Continuation     2011  -­‐    FI  planning  support  and  PD  to  GLF  LEAs   2012  -­‐    NCDPI  Capacity  Building  Effort      
  • 8. NCLTI:  The  Digital  Transition  Cycle   •  A  visual  guide  and  common  language  for  planning,  implementing  and   sustaining  digital  learning  initiatives.   •  Provides  a  comprehensive  structure  for  continuous  improvement  in   digital  teaching  and  learning  environments.   •  Frames  the  digital  transition  as  a  process  that  requires  ongoing   monitoring  to  inform  progress.   •  It  is  organized  into  phases  with  appropriate  resources              and  guiding  documents  aligned  to  each  phase.  
  • 9. NCLTI:  Tools  and  Resources   Digital Learning Progress Rubric Looking for Technology Integration (LoFTI) School Technology Needs Assessment (STNA) School Technology Needs Assessment for Students (STNA-S) Master Planning Docs Implementation Plan *All tools and resources are linked www.surveys.fi.ncsu.edu
  • 10. VISION     *  The  visioning  process  facilitates  discussion  of  target  goals  and  rationale   *  Creating  a  shared  vision  through  consensus  building   *  A  distributive  leadership  team  based  approach  is  strongly  suggested   *  Identify  and  include  all  key  stakeholders   *  Lead  with  the  focus  on  teaching  and  learning  -­‐  this  is  a  C&I  initiative   *  Creating  dynamic  student-­‐centered  environments  leveraging  technology   *  Use  the  Digital  Progress  Rubric  to  explore  where  you            currently  are,  where  you  need  to  go  and  how  to  get  there    
  • 11. PLAN   *  Plan  to  Plan  -­‐  -­‐  A  thoughtful  and  well-­‐designed  planning  process  is  vital  to  the   success  of  your  initiative   *  The  "devil  is  in  the  details"  -­‐  -­‐  explore  the  Master  Planning  docs  as  a  roadmap   toward  developing  detailed  guidelines   *  Discussion  of  the  ten  areas  highlighted  in  the  Master  Plan  will  facilitate  important   discussions  that  will  eventually  guide  implementation   *  Focus  on  understanding  and  addressing  the  professional  development  needs  of   administrators  and  teachers   *  Use  the  information  gathered  from  the  Digital  Progress  Rubric                to  determine  where  to  start   *  Identify  areas  of  strategic  alignment  with  current  or  ongoing              initiatives    
  • 12. IMPLEMENT       *  As  you  implement,  tracking  progress  and  transparency  are  essential   *  The  ten  areas  elevated  in  the  Master  Plan  are  further  detailed  in   the  Implementation  Template   *  Use  the  Implementation  Template  as  a  "living"  repository  of  planning   information.  Feel  free  to  customize  this  tool  based  on  your  context
