Digital Learning Day 2013: Celebrating Great Teaching and K-12 Schools
Mark Your Calendar! On February 5, 2014, the Alliance will host the third annual Digital Learning Day.
Digital Learning Day is a nationwide celebration of innovative teaching and learning through digital media and technology that engages students and provides them with a rich, personalized, educational experience. The inaugural Digital Learning Day—held February 1, 2012—quickly gained momentum as a grassroots effort in states, districts, schools, and classrooms. It highlighted and celebrated successful models, great teaching practice, and effective uses of technology to improve learning for all students.
Digital Learning Day 2013 builds upon the momentum of its first year through a drumbeat of positive messages, resources, and educational materials in digital learning topic areas. Digital learning encompasses a wide spectrum of tools and practices, including the use of online and formative assessment, increased focus and quality of teaching resources, reevaluation of the use of time, online content and courses, applications of technology in the classroom and school building, adaptive software for students with special needs, learning platforms, participation in professional communities of practice, access to high-level and challenging content and instruction, and many other advancements technology provides to teaching and learning.
