A district with a clear vision that lacks the capacity to put that vision to practice might as well have no vision at all. Join our panelists as they discuss the various ways their districts have implemented structured efforts to build capacity of practice for their teachers to ensure resources are used to personalize digital learning in a way that is aligned with their districts’ visions.
