NCBOLD Professional Learning

The Office of Digital Teaching and Learning (DTL) is excited to announce its new iteration of NCBOLD for this summer.  New for this year: NCBOLD will be a TWO-Day Conference!  Back again this year is Data Manager training for both Infinite Campus and PowerSchool and the Beginning Teacher Track. Sessions for Data Managers will be led by NCDPI SIS Consultants, as well as practicing educators. PSUs may send multiple school-based data managers for this track.  This has been one of our most widely requested needs and we are excited that we can provide this opportunity at a regional level.  Also new for this year at NCBOLD, we will have Digital Literacy sessions and E-Rate Boot Camp for PSU E-Rate contacts.


Realizing the importance of high-quality, face-to-face professional learning, DTL will offer a two-day digital teaching and learning conference in each of the educational regions throughout our state.  NCBOLD has recruited current, practicing educators with a proven track record of delivering high-quality and innovative professional learning tied to the Digital Learning Competencies for teacherseducation leadersstudents, and coaches.  These NCBOLD ambassadors have created and will execute innovative sessions that will allow practicing educators to effectively integrate digital teaching and learning in their classrooms.  Attendees can earn up to 0.7 CEUs for each day’s attendance.  A complimentary lunch and light morning snack will be provided each day. Below are some resources that you may find helpful:
