North Carolina Leadership in Blended and Digital Learning Principal Cohort.
NCDPI has partnered with the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation (Friday Institute) and the N.C. Principals & Assistant Principals’ Association (NCPAPA) to provide a professional development program that will coach and guide principals through the creation of digital learning environments in their schools. The program will be delivered using a year-long blended program with five face-to-face sessions followed by a series of on-line activities designed to guide and coach selected principals through the school-based application of best practices for leading a successful digital transformation.

As participants are led and coached through capacity-building activities for their own schools, they are simultaneously building their capacity as digitally competent school leaders to:
• Develop a shared vision for the attributes of a transformed new generation of schools for the new generation of digital learners
• Develop and implement a plan for transforming the teaching and learning process by creating structures for on-demand, self-paced access to the highest quality personalized instruction for every learner’s data-driven learning needs
• Create a collaborative school culture of academic excellence that fosters teacher and student leadership and responsibility for learning
• Create an engaging, application and problem-based learning environment that fosters creativity and the highest levels of thinking and problem solving
• Develop teachers’ capacity for making optimum use of technologies and digital resources to create learning environments where all students can succeed
• Build community understanding and support for new approaches to teaching and learning.
• Use a proven approach for leading and managing the revolutionized new generation school transformation

All assignments will be actual real-world, value-added activities that are part of a long-term sustained cycle of capacity building for the participants’ own schools, students, staff, and communities.
