Digital Learning Leaders


The Digital Learning Leaders program is designed for anyone who is a leader in the process of integrating technology in a school or district. Participants from past groups have been library media specialists, classroom teachers, lab instructors, technology integrationists, administrators, and teachers on special assignment.


Today’s Digital Learning Leaders and Specialists are responsible for helping teachers design, create and curate digital resources, use technology tools for teaching and learning, and lead their school or school district in providing engaging, real world learning experiences for students.

The TIESed Digital Learning Leaders program is an extended professional development program that runs from August 2016 to May 2017. Our content and activities are based on the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) recommended standards for Technology Coaches.
