Digital Learning Day began in 2012 and was started as a venue for education leaders to highlight the great teaching practices, showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that improve student achievement. Digital Learning Day is a national celebration that is not about technology, it is about learning and enhancing the role of the teacher in the classroom.
Increasing digital learning in the classroom not only provides opportunities for student-driven learning, but also greatly increases equity and access to quality educational opportunities for all students.
Is your school willing to eliminate the traditional boundaries in education and encourage your students to become actively engaged in their education in a digital world? Let us know! #DLDay!
