District and School Leaders and Their Leadership Team
As an initial step to participating in Project 24, district leaders are encouraged to create a leadership team that will participate in a digital learning self assessment. Requiring no more than two hours to complete, this self assessment includes a series of questions helping each district frame their vision for student learning, begin to recognize various aspects of the system to be addressed, and specify how technology can help align these efforts to achieve higher college- and career-ready standards.
Self Assessment Report
Upon completing the survey, each district or school will receive a PDF report that analyzes where it is in each topic of the self assessment as well as offering recommendations about best ways to use the Project 24 tools and content to review and develop its digital learning strategy. Regardless of when district leaders learn about Project 24 during the next two years, they will have an opportunity to take the self assessment, get the report, and retrieve the webinars, digital tools, blogs, and chats in each topic area. The survey data will also provide the Alliance with important data detailing the overall status of digital learning at the school district level and identifying common problems as well as successful practices.
Note: The Project 24 framework was designed by the Metiri Group based on the seven gears identified by the Alliance for Excellent Education. A Metiri team developed the associated rubrics, the Project 24 survey, and the turn key system that generates the Project 24 report.
