Examples of How the LiDA Center is Helping Educators Harness the Power of Digital Technologies

NSF Grant to Prepare Teacher Leaders

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.

K-12 Digital Consortium and its Website

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.
