The Massachusetts Digital Publication Collaborative was designed to provide educators with collaborative time to build digital curriculum content. The event is three days so that educators can have several hours to work together by content area to curate and create digital resources, materials, lessons, and assessments.
Participants can expect an informal conference experience where the conversation and collaboration drives the day. There will be formal sessions for participants to learn new and emerging tools for digital content creation and distribution. We encourage all in attendance to make the most of his or her day and invite participants to attend one day or all three days.
The content area sessions are not traditional presentations. These sessions are led by everyone in the group as educators share ideas and begin the process of building digital content for their classrooms. While three days are usually not enough to create entire digital courses, MADPC process a starting point for educators. Please use the time to make connections with educators from other districts and continue the creation process after the event.
