All across the country, schools are undergoing a transformation in
teaching and learning with the help of digital technology. As educators re-imagine school in new and different ways, Digital Learning Day provides an opportunity to collaborate with peers, share ideas, try new digital tools, and celebrate education innovation. Most importantly, it encourages everyone to play a role in the transformation of their own schools and communities.
From virtual student debates to a digital project showcase, local Digital Learning Day events are as diverse and unique as the students that participate. The possibilities are endless. Thousands of classrooms in addition to community centers, school districts and even states get involved in the day by hosting events and activities that highlight or encourage new ways of using technology for learning.
