Digital Learning Plan Update Spring 2014

Agenda for the day:


 Click for: State Superintendent's Digital Learning Plan


The Digital Learning Advisory Council (DLAC) was created to provide intellectual and practical insights into all aspects of digital learning in Wisconsin. The DLAC was charged with developing a comprehensive plan for PK-12 digital learning in Wisconsin. This report represents recommendations and will continually be updated. The DLAC’s intent is to publish a living digital learning document, which provides recommendations to the State Superintendent on initiatives that  advance PK-12 digital learning, and which serves as a guidepost for educators and digital learning stakeholders.
