Former N.C. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced last week that she will lead a new digital education nonprofit, marking her first return to the public sphere since she left the Governor’s Mansion last year.
The Digital Learning Institute, or DigiLEARN, was founded by Perdue and will include former Wyoming Gov. Jim Geringer as vice chairman. It aims to expand technology use in the learning process throughout the nation.
“This is different than anything in the country,” Perdue said in a speech announcing the project. “This is the first time I have been excited about something innovative in education in years.”
