Rolling – combination of the above to provide a sustained program of training with fixed objectives and outcomes.
Online – a combination of videos and webinars

This site has been created by teachers for teachers. It was inspired by teachers calling for a one stop shop place to find excellent resources to help integrate technology into lesson plans. It was also inspired by the great work of Teaching Fellows at North Carolina Teacher Academy who trained NC Literacy Coaches both programs line item cut by Governor Perdue in 2008. In 2016, the North Carolina Teacher Academy was re-envisioned and re-established as a privately owned entity in late 2016 early 2017.
