Why Digital Teaching and Learning?
Digital teaching sparks curiosity and passion for learning while cultivating creative lifelong learners.

Davie County Schools will be working to develop a DCS Digital Learning Plan throughout the 2016-17 school year.  The goal of the Digital Learning Plan is to build upon the existing foundation to develop a coherent long-term strategy that sets directions and priorities, supports innovation, and provides resources to enable the State’s educators and students to benefit fully from digital-age teaching and learning

Navigate the Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers
NCDPI and Davie County Schools are excited to announce that the North Carolina State Board of Education approved the Digital Learning Competencies for Classroom Teachers and School Administrators on June 2, 2016. These competencies will go into effect July 1, 2017. Throughout the 2016-2017 school year we will be piloting the competencies and providing professional learning opportunities across the state.

The intent of the competencies is for teachers to improve their practice as they integrate digital tools and resources to drive student learning within their classrooms. The four focus areas, within the teacher competencies, have been aligned to the Professional Teaching Standards and the Digital Learning Plan with a subset of competencies that help to explain and ‘unpack’ each area.
