Examples of How the LiDA Center is Helping Educators Harness the Power of Digital Technologies
A partnership between six local districts and the Warner School has secured $3M from the National Science Foundation to prepare a cadre of 20 “digitally-rich STEM master teachers” that will act as catalysts and supporters of digitally-rich innovations in their district.
A number of school districts and local BOCES in the region, in collaboration with the LiDA Center, have come together to collaborate and learn from each other as they tackle the challenge of leveraging digital technology to transform teaching practices in their schools. The LiDA Center is “incubating” this emerging organization.
As the current president of the Online Learning Consortium, LiDA Center Associate Director Eric Fredericksen has a unique opportunity to leverage and inform the most organizations on online education in the country.
