Transforming Education in the Greenwich Public Schools:
Implementing a Digital Learning Environment (DLE)
In April 2013, the Greenwich Public Schools launched a three-year, three-phase Digital Learning Environment (DLE) initiative to advance the transformation of teaching and learning and to accelerate the academic achievement and personal well being of all students. The DLE is designed to provide teachers with the resources necessary to both innovate and differentiate instruction according to the needs of each student and for students to personalize their own learning, making choices about how they learn and present their new knowledge.

* Registration is limited to 40 individuals from elementary families per workshop based on the registration timestamp.
Apple has requested an enrollment limit of 40 participants to ensure a high quality personalized learning experience for parents. If your registration was accepted, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from Nona Ullman, DLE Project Manager. All registered and confirmed attendees will receive preferential admittance at the workshop.
The Apple Workshops are primarily geared towards improving iPad skills on the iPad apps. The Apple reps are not trained in our curriculum or policies. The GPS-Apple workshops were conceptualized as private opportunities in which parents could graciously receive more hands-on attention from Apple Creatives. GPS-specific information will be disseminated in the official GPS DLE Parent Workshop series that usually falls close in scheduling to the Apple sessions. In short, these were two parallel tracks planned in close coordination between both organizations.
