CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Alliance Accepting Proposals for Excellence and Innovation in Digital Learning; Winners to Be Featured on Digital Learning Day 2015

As a final reminder, the Alliance for Excellent Education is now accepting online submissions to identify districts, schools, and out-of-school programs that are effectively leveraging digital learning and technology to improve outcomes for middle and high school students. Selected submissions will be invited to participate in online and in-person events, in addition to being highlighted in video interviews, case studies, and other publications associated with the Alliance’s 2015 Digital Learning Day and Project 24 initiatives throughout 2015.

The Alliance has identified four areas in which submissions will be judged:

  • Relevance: Submissions that include the innovative use of digital learning to ensure students graduate from high school ready for college and a career are welcome, including at the school, district, or state levels. Innovative uses of digital learning in out-of-school programs, including libraries, museums, and other community partners are also encouraged.
  • Proven effectiveness: Submissions should specify how the program has increased student achievement, graduation rates, and college- and career-readiness rates. Also of interest is evidence of increased attendance, decreased discipline problems, improved teaching skills, equitable teacher distribution, and improved leadership and school climate.
  • Underserved student populations: Submissions should explain how the use of digital learning has played a role in supporting the broader reform and improvement of low-performing schools and increasing equity among low-income, rural, and special education students, English learners, and students of color.
  • Middle and high schools: Submissions should provide examples of promising practices used primarily in the middle and high school grades. If a broader range of grades is served, limit quantitative and qualitative data to middle and high school grades, if possible.

The Alliance is particularly interested in digital learning success stories that highlight effective practices in one or more the following categories: curriculum, instruction, and assessment; professional learning; data and privacy; budget and resources; community partnerships; use of time; and technology, networks, and hardware.

The deadline for submissions is November 10, 2014. More information on the submissions process, including an online application form, is available at

    I am hoping to start a conversation about remedial learning for college students in Maine. We have seen a great increase of students in our community colleges that require remedial courses before enrolling in their core classes. I am interested in writing my dissertation on this very topic but was wondering if anyone had some great information on this subject through AEE.

    Thank you so much,

    Cassie Dove
