On February 6, 2013, the Alliance will hold the second annual Digital Learning Day culminating in a national event webcast live from the Newseum in Washington, DC that will feature premier guests, speakers, and teachers from around the country, as well as state-of-the-art learning resources and tools.
The upcoming 2013 event builds upon the events of February 1, 2012, when thirty-nine states, 17,000 teachers, and nearly 2 million students participated in the first-ever Digital Learning Day, a national campaign spearheaded by the Alliance for Excellent Education that celebrates teachers and shines a spotlight on successful instructional practice and effective use of technology in classrooms across the country.
“It’s not just about technology, it’s about using technology effectively to help teachers improve learning outcomes for students,” said Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia. “Digital Learning Day will demonstrate how great teaching and great instructional innovation, when combined with the effective use of technology, can help personalize and improve learning for every student.”
Participation in Digital Learning Day is free, easy, and open to all interested educators, parents, and students in and out of school. Registered participants will receive exclusive information including interactive lessons that teachers can use on Digital Learning Day and tips on how to incorporate digital tools into daily instruction.
