(TCPS) today announced an expansion of its partnership with Discovery Education. The latest phase of this collaboration focuses on professional development, as 30 educators from all eight district schools are now scheduled to participate in Discovery Education’s Digital Leader Corps, which aims to help the school system develop a network of teacher-leaders prepared to design and implement teaching strategies to be shared with their peers.
Featuring a combination of professional learning, pedagogy and tools, Digital Leader Corps offers participating educators approaches to integrating educational technologies and digital media into classroom instruction. These approaches are then practiced in educator created, student-centered Learning Labs. In these labs, teachers practice and adapt their new skills in a classroom setting before sharing their successes broadly with their colleagues.
