Digital Learning Day will inspire, encourage educators

digital-learningOn Feb. 5, 2014, teachers, library media specialists, and students across the nation will celebrate Digital Learning Day as they strive to incorporate digital learning into their classrooms and libraries.

The day is intended to help educators learn how they can inject more of a digital emphasis into their instruction, and is part of a larger movement to make digital learning more of a mainstay in U.S. classrooms and libraries.

The Alliance for Excellent Education is hosting a live celebration that includes talks and commentary from policy makers and education leaders, hands-on lessons and activities to demonstrate digital learning in action, and advice from district-level experts who are successfully navigating the digital transition.

Those interested can register for the virtual conference, which includes a kickoff session at 11 a.m. EST and a National Digital Learning Policy panel discussion at 2:30 p.m. EST.
