Digital Teaching & Learning (DTL) supports educators in facilitating the effective use of technology to enhance student learning.
Digital Learning Big 6
We have a variety of programs that are used district-wide to fulfill our mission of supporting educators with effective technology to enhance student learning.
As digital teaching and learning specialists, we support teachers in using technology effectively to enhance student learning. Technology itself is not a solution. Combined with researched best teaching practices, technology becomes a tool for more personalized, powerful, public education.
