Technology has the power, when used strategically and systemically as part of whole-school reform, to accelerate improvement in schools. Progress has been too incremental and fragmented. Now is the time to ensure that all students have access to the connected content and great teaching that a strategic, systemic use of digital learning can bring. To raise awareness, encourage innovation and celebrate great teaching, the Alliance for Excellent Education is hosting Digital Learning Day. In less than a few weeks, dozens of states, over a thousand educators, and hundreds of thousands of students will participate.
On Wednesday, January 18 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (ET), the Alliance for Excellent Education will hold a webinar featuring the perspective of districts as well as elementary, middle, and high schools on the power of digital learning and how to participate in Digital Learning Day. The webinar will feature members of the Educator Working Group and representatives from Core Partners that support the Alliance’s Digital Learning Day efforts. They will discuss how they have seen digital learning make a difference in the lives of students and teachers. They will also share their plans for Digital Learning Day and describe how anyone can get involved.
