Announcing the Digital Learning Transition MOOC for Educators (MOOC-Ed) Register today<http://digitallearningday.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=9ce47950aea28fe1575772f4a&id=41db2e93b7&e=2c49d867df>
The Spring 2014 DLT MOOC-Ed units begin on Jan. 20 and ends on March 15, with the course remaining open through April 30 for those who would like more time to complete their work.
This course, hosted by the Alliance for Excellent Education, in partnership with the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at NC State University, utilizes the Project 24 Framework and involves experts from across the country and includes:
*         Part I: Where Are We Heading? Goals for the Digital Learning Transition: Part I focuses on the big picture of envisioning the future of schools, changing the culture of teaching and learning, and digital learning transitions in exemplary schools and districts.
*         Part II: How Do We Get There? Planning for a Digital Learning Transition: Part II focuses on planning to address professional development, technology infrastructure, community engagement, use of data, and other elements of successful DLT plans.
"In my opinion this MOOC-Ed is different from other MOOCs.  It allows you to be in the driver's seat while most other MOOCs are more like driverless cars." -DLT MOOC-Ed Participant, Fall 2013
The DLT MOOC-Ed is designed for school and district leaders, such as superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, technology directors, financial officers, principals, instructional coaches, library media specialists, and lead teachers, as well as university faculty, consultants, parents and any others involved in planning and implementing K-12 digital learning initiatives.
A few comments from previous participants include:

  *   "No matter the issue I was thinking about or planning to work on, someone had a suggestion or was already working on a similar area. The dialogue and resources were timely and thought provoking as well as helpful."
  *   "Sharing resources, plans, pitfalls, and celebrations of folks from so many different economic and sociological backgrounds really helped one feel 'We are not in this alone' and gave me the Inspiration to push administration for more tech focused professional development."
  *   "I think everyone in education is busy with the day-to-day operations of schools, but we need to put aside time to grow and develop!  This course was a great opportunity to grow in the area of digital learning and I am glad that I took the time to let it sink in."
