National Digital Learning Day February 1, 2012
Announcing Digital Learning Day
US Digital Literacy, in partnership with the Alliance for Excellent Education led for Governor Bob Wise, is pleased to announce our participation in the first ever Digital Learning Day campaign. This national campaign is designed to celebrate innovative teaching and highlight practices that make learning more personalized and engaging for students, exploring how digital learning can provide all students with the opportunities they deserve – to build the skills needed to succeed in college, career, and life. Through this campaign, we are hoping to build momentum for a wave of innovation that changes policies, shifts attitudes, and supports wide-scale adoption of these promising instructional practices.
By signing up now, participants will have access to targeted toolkits outlining ideas and ways to plan their Digital Learning Day celebration, as well as updates, informational videos, webinars, and other resources. No matter the approach, no matter the grade level, no matter the subject or geographic location, no matter a teacher’s specific comfort with using technology, this campaign will challenge education professionals and policy makers at all levels to start a conversation, make a proclamation, improve a lesson, or create a plan.
Then, on Wednesday, February 1, 2012, a national town hall meeting will be held to highlight and celebrate participants across the nation. Schools, libraries, community programs and classrooms are invited to showcase how they are using digital media to improve teaching and learning!
The campaign is a movement that will help provide a quality education for EVERY child. Change is up to YOU – we hope you will help build this wave for innovation, personalized learning, and great teaching by participating in the Digital Learning Day campaign effort.
