On October 1, the Alliance for Excellent Education announced that the fourth annual Digital Learning Day will be held on Friday, March 13, 2015, in conjunction with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’s (the National Board) second annual Teaching and Learning conference. The Alliance also unveiled a brand-new website for Digital Learning Day featuring new tools, resources, lesson plans, and video profiles of leading districts at www.DigitalLearningDay.org.
“Since its debut in 2012, Digital Learning Day has been the premier event for showcasing how technology can improve student outcomes and support teachers,” said Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia. “This new partnership with the National Board will put an even greater emphasis on the kind of instructional practice needed to make digital learning effective. Together, we can spread examples of what is working and encourage greater adoption of high-quality digital learning to ensure that all youth have access to those opportunities no matter where they live.”
One component of the partnership with the National Board will include a live broadcast of the Digital Learning Day National Town Hall from the Teaching and Learning conference in Washington, DC, to an audience of more than 3,000 National Board Certified Teachers, as well as hundreds of thousands of educators who will be watching online. The National Town Hall will highlight school districts, schools, and educators effectively using technology to make a difference in student learning.
“Like Digital Learning Day, the Teaching and Learning conference is about highlighting effective educators and others involved in pre-K through twelfth-grade education and spreading effective teaching practices to those on the front lines of education reform, making it a natural fit,” said Ronald Thorpe, president and chief executive officer of the National Board.
