"The educators who participated in the PD were overwhelmingly grateful for the opportunity and stated the experience was very positive."
2020 Grantee

Professional Development for the Digital Literacy Now grant is coordinated by CSforMA. During the Summer 2020 CSforMA Professonal Learning Institute, 172 educators participated in Professional development.  

Through a series of week-long sessions, educators took advantage of train-the-trainer sessions, gained experience with advanced software tools and platforms, and learned collaboratively with colleagues from across the state. All courses met DLCS standards so that teachers are able to gain competency review for licensure.
