Digital Promise launched the Dynamic Learning Project (DLP) in 2017 with the goal to increase educational equity and powerful use of technology through instructional coaching. Since its launch, the DLP has reached 160 schools in 32 school districts across 10 states—Alabama, Arkansas, California, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington, Wisconsin, and Texas—to support school-based instructional technology coaches with mentoring, professional development, and continuous improvement data for coaches, principals, and district leaders.
During the pilot year, we found that teachers who participated in the DLP used technology more frequently and in more powerful ways with their students. In Year 2, teachers who received DLP coaching reported greater skills and confidence in leveraging technology in their teaching, which resulted in increased student engagement and learning. Overall, our findings suggest that the Dynamic Learning Project is more than just a promising intervention—it’s producing research that can inform ongoing conversations on teacher professional development, coaching, and technologies for learning.
