New York, NY (PRWEB) July 08, 2016
The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) is honored to introduce the 2016 LDC Lead & Learn Fellows, who will serve as LDC ambassadors at the SREB College- and Career-Readiness Standards Networking Conference in Louisville, KY, next month. Fellowship teams will present LDC sessions to share their practice, enhance learning for others, engage in social media, and continue the conversation after the conference with posts on the LDC blog. Sessions will cover topics such as student engagement, project-based learning, instructional scaffolding, teacher collaboration, and much more. The LDC Lead & Learn Fellows will also be sharing their classroom implementation techniques and their takeaways. Teachers participating in the federally-funded i3 innovation grant will also be presenting and sharing their experiences from the first year of LDC implementation.
LDC commends these leaders in our community of practice for their willingness to share their time and expertise to help other educators and their students succeed. Fellowship teams that applied for and were accepted for this year’s program have been awarded a stipend to defray the costs of travel, lodging, and conference registration.
