Workplace and educational technology ecosystems are continuously expanding and evolving, so teachers and students alike need to be nimble, lifelong learners. In order to provide ample opportunities to build their students' digital literacy and resilience skills, teachers need strong foundational digital literacy skills and the capacity to creatively draw on them to craft meaningful instructional activities.

The Program Support PD Center provides PD and information on user-friendly, free, and low-cost educational technology tools, as well as an understanding of the optimum conditions, audiences, purposes, and practices for using them effectively.

We welcome your input on PD that you would find helpful. If you have questions or would like additional support, please contact our Digital Literacy PD Coordinator Diana Satin at
