IDOE recognizes the need to build the capacity of teachers to deliver highly-effective digital learning. To aid schools/districts in building this capacity, IDOE is launching the Digital Learning Capacity Building Grant. Through this innovative program, grants will be awarded to schools/districts that develop comprehensive plans to bring blended and digital learning training to their teachers. Applicants are encouraged to implement a train-the-trainer model to ensure sustainability and leverage micro-credentialing to provide competency-based training and document the authentic growth that teachers experience through the training.
