    VVSD Digital Learning Center
    In addition to reFresh Technology Training Sessions, Instructional Technology also offers the VVSD Digital Learning Center: www.vvsd.org/DLC. This platform, which was a collaborative project built by the 2017-18 Google Goorus, and maintained by our current Goorus, allows for online learning by any staff member, on any device, from any location. PD Hours can even be earned by certified staff members who complete a module and sign up on Wisdomwhere for the corresponding session. Topics range from getting started with Google to advanced tips and tricks, as well as a special focus on digital citizenship in the 21st century classroom.
