In my role as Instructional Leader at the TDSB I designed, developed and implemented the Digital Lead Learner (DLL) program in collaboration with my colleagues for the past five years.
Digital Lead Learners (DLL) is a Professional Learning Network of volunteer elementary and secondary teachers interested in and dedicated to supporting the curricular use of technology. During the 2014-2015 school year, DLL provided 75 after school workshops to over 800 teachers and hosted a K-12 EdTech MarketPlace with over 400 attendees.
Digital Lead Learners include elementary and secondary teachers, curriculum leaders, and includes representation from STEM, Special Education, Library and Learning Resources, French, and Model Schools. Each year approximately 75 face-to-face and online after school workshops are provided to over 700 teachers.
The DLL Learning Goals include:
~Building educational technology capacity in each FOS through a sustainable professional learning model
~Supporting TDSB priorities through the curricular use of technology
~Fostering innovative practices and educational technologies in TDSB classrooms
