SC’s 2016 Lead PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator Carla Jefferson!
This year marks the fourth year that PBS has offered the PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Campaign. The prestigious program recognizes educators who are leveraging digital media in their classrooms in innovative ways. In 2016, this group of exceptional educators, who applied to be part of the PBS LearningMedia educator community, is almost 1,000 strong and each will receive year-long professional development. From this group of educators, a selected group of “Lead” Digital Innovators (one from almost every state and territory) was chosen! These innovators will join PBS for the 2-day PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Summit in Denver this June.
Carla Jefferson, Instructional Technology Coordinator for Darlington County School District in Darlington, S.C., was recently selected as our 2016 Lead PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator!
A former teacher, curriculum facilitator, and school level administrator, Carla's goal is to level the playing field for all children through the use of technology. What Carla loves most about her job is that in her role, she has to power to positively affect over 10,000 students - preparing them to be positive and contributing citizens to our society. Students who think create, collaborate, think critically, and communicate effectively. Watching the excitement in her new students, her teachers, helps her to know that she is making a difference.
