Where do you want to go?
The Digital Learning Competencies (DLCs) are skills that teachers and leaders should integrate into their practice in order to create an effective digital learning environment. The content of the competencies was informed by national models such as the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) teaching standards, International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and the North Carolina Logic Model.
Take a course through the Friday Institute, get Google Certified or see what courses NCCAT and NCDPI have to offer. When you complete your study, submit your certificate and receive Digital Learning Competency, General, Literacy or Content credit for your work.
Independent Study Starting October 1st!
The Learning Differences Friday Institute MOOC-Ed is a six-week long, online course that hopes to help educators understand the ways in which students’ learning varies and what they can do to meet every student’s needs.
The course first encourages teachers to understand their own learning differences and then goes into depth on strategies for learning differences in executive function, working memory, and motivation. Instructional coaches, media coordinators, and teacher leaders will have the opportunity to participate in an additional two units focused on strategies for coaching and supporting other teachers in their work with learning differences. Teachers in North Carolina receive 2.5 CEUs (1.0 DLC available). Teachers can complete course activities any time, any where as it works for them. Coaches will also have the opportunity to complete a coaching module for an additional 5 hours (0.5 CEUs) which might be a great way for these leaders to connect the course content to their role.

These AIG Booster Shots were developed in direct response to district and teacher needs.

The AIG Booster Shots will allow you to participate in self-paced mini-pd sessions focused on best gifted instructional practices. They are designed to be 30-45 minutes with the primary audience being K-12 teachers who have already had professional development regarding gifted and differentiation before, but need a reminder. They may also be used to introduce differentiation and best practices for AIG/advanced learners to teachers.
