Plan an Activity or an Event

We hope that you will use Digital Learning Day to build awareness about the potential of technology in your local schools.  The real power of the day is in the grassroots efforts taking place in classrooms, libraries, schools districts and all 50 states across the US. This call to action is not just for school leaders.  Cities, counties, local businesses or policy makers should plan to host activities, too!

Ideas to Consider

We challenge you to make Digital Learning Day your own.  Some activities will be less than an hour while others may be all year long. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Distribute a flier with free technology tools and ask your faculty to try something new
  • Host a digital learning fair showcasing a project based learning activity
  • Work with your local PTA/PTO to hold a Family Technology Night
  • Showcase innovative teachers and/or students
  • Plan an event at your state capitol or community center to engage policymakers and community leaders to learn more
  • Conduct a teacher or student video contest
  • Create a blog space for students and teachers post essays
  • Teach an interactive digital lesson in the classroom - Try one here
  • Ask technology savvy teachers to mentor other teachers in their building or district
  • Encourage the use of teacher portals and professional learning communities
  • Use Digital Learning Day to focus on cyber-bullying or digital citizenship
  • Announce "big news" such as a new 1 to 1 initiative, a professional development series, or a new approach
