National programs, such as Future Ready, #GoOpen, and SpeakUp; along with statewide initiatives, such as New Hampshire Educators Online, and the NH School Connectivity Initiative will be discussed. Also, the statewide toolkits that are available on NHEON.org will be reviewed so attendees can become familiar with them.  Participants will explore how their current school collaborative efforts might be enhanced through participation in one or more of these initiatives, and how these kinds of initiatives can connect to the overall transition to personalized learning and competency based education in New Hampshire.
