CIDDL will achieve its goals by facilitating networking among organizations and leaders, connecting personnel preparation to resources with context, and supporting stakeholders through Communities of practice, personal learning networks, and coaching. The global objective of CIDDL’s resources and activities is to engage and develop personnel preparation stakeholders around effective use of technology for innovation, design, and digital learning. We have developed a framework to support areas where there are known barriers in educational technology adoption and use. Check out this post to read more about how the Director of CIDDL, Dr. James Basham, interprets the CIDDL framework.
