Creating a Digital Learning Repository

The technology that teachers need to bring digital learning into their classrooms exists, but instructors are often unsure of exactly how to incorporate this technology in meaningful ways. Northwestern University in Illinois has taken steps to ease this burden by providing an online digital learning website that offers information, tools and examples of best practices.

Within the walls of your school system, or campus, likely live digital natives and technology titans armed with the knowledge, information and passion to serve as guides and coaches for others. There are also, likely, those who have learning needs related to technology adoption. Bringing these groups together to understand what the gaps might be, and how they could be efficiently filled, can serve as a starting point for developing your own best practice repository of tools and resources to fuel digital learning.
