Schools across the nation are signing up for Digital Learning Day, a national campaign that celebrates innovation in the classrooms on February 1st. On this day, administrators, teachers, parents, and students everywhere will unite to discuss the ways in which technology has revolutionized the curriculum and exchange ideas on how to improve computer literacy.

Started by the Alliance for Excellent Education, Digital Learning Day empowers members of the education community with a number of resources and tool kits that are available on the group’s website. Their professional development offerings include interdisciplinary lesson plans, digital learning examples by district, and webinars.

Individuals are encouraged to participate in this free event no matter what their technical skill level. Best of all, colleagues who spread the word about Digital Learning Day can win a $100 grant for their classroom. Be the first Houston school to get on board with Digital Learning Day by signing up today!


One thought on “Teachers to Develop New Ideas on Digital Learning Day

  1. I support digital learning. I have probably the largest poetry website containing hundreds of my own poems, which go out to an average of 1000 classrooms a day. During the last month the poems have gone into 146 countries of the world. Most readers read on average 8 pages of my website each visit. The poems were market researched on both children and on teachers and hundreds were chosen for publication. Google “Inspirational Online Children’s Poet 2007” and you will see that I was awarded this title by a children’s newspaper that goes out to hundreds of countries of the world.
