The new NC Digital Learning & Media Inventory (NC DLMI) went live on April 11, 2016. The NC DLMI collects data for state and national reporting, to inform state and local budgets, and to assist in planning state and local digital learning efforts. Inventory questions are streamlined and aligned to the North Carolina Digital Learning Progress Rubric.
This inventory replaces the Annual Media & Technology Report (AMTR). Modernizing the AMTR is a critical component of moving the NC Digital Learning Plan forward. The new tool has built-in logic and navigation to allow for ease of data input. The login process for the NC DLMI is the same as the previous AMTR.
In addition to the new data collection tool, we are also working on a reporting tool that will provide access to data and customizable reports for LEAs, individual schools, and charter schools. The NC DLMI provides a valuable data source that complements the Digital Learning Progress Rubric, providing each LEA and school a comprehensive view of its digital teaching and learning programs.
The information collected in the NC DLMI is based on the school and district level digital learning and media resources in place by June 30 of each year. The data collected provides the legislature and the public a yearly snapshot of the state of digital learning and media programs in North Carolina's schools.
