Save the Date: Digital Learning Day – February 5th, 2014

November 21, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Digital Learning Day will be held on February 5, 2014 in conjunction with state events and the national event hosted by the Alliance for Excellent Education at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. This powerful grassroots campaign promotes the effective use of technology to improve outcomes and achieve higher college- and career-ready standards for all students in K–12 public schools.

Digital Learning Day promotes the belief that every child deserves the opportunity to learn in a robust digital environment every day with the goal of success in college and a career. Common-sense and effective applications of digital learning should be fully integrated into all of America’s schools, libraries, coffee shops, and homes to promote life-long learning and good citizenship.

It takes less than five minutes to add your voice.

I ask that you add your voice and consider planning classroom-based activities for your students and parents to get involved. Activities and events can be as simple or complicated as you like. Feel free to use Digital Learning Day’s interactive lessons (more coming soon), host a technology fair to showcase student work, check out the teacher toolkits for ideas, or simply try something new that better integrates technology into good instructional practice. Regardless of your level of comfort with instructional technology, Digital Learning Day has something for everyone. 

In addition to the national event and its related activities, all fifty states and DC are making similar plans. This is a great opportunity to use the momentum from these national and state-awareness campaigns to highlight your district- and school-level digital learning efforts to media, community leaders, parents, and local policymakers.

Most importantly, we urge you to
