On January 6, the Alliance held a webinar to highlight some successful schools and to provide more information about how individuals can get involved in Digital Learning Day and learn more about how technology can impact student learning.
The webinar featured Ann Flynn, director of education technology and state association services at the National School Boards Association; Jayne Marlink, executive director of the California Writing Project; and Jason Pittman, a science teacher at Hollin Meadows Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia. The webinar also featured Alliance President Bob Wise, who provided highlights from the new Alliance report, The Digital Learning Imperative: How Technology and Teaching Meet Today’s Education Challenges.
During the webinar, panelists discussed how digital learning has made a difference in the lives of students and teachers as well as the elements of success in digital initiatives. They also discussed their own plans for the first-ever national Digital Learning Day scheduled for February 1, 2012.
