Bob Wise: Digital Learning Day 2016: Working for Digital Equity, Today and Every Day (#DLDay)
Today thousands of teachers and millions of students are celebrating the ways technology transforms student learning as part of the Alliance for Excellent Education’s (the Alliance’s) fifth annual Digital Learning Day (DLDay). Teaching strategies that use technology to strengthen student learning (collectively known as digital learning) have become integral instructional practices in many schools. Yet a significant portion of the school-age population cannot access online learning tools after school hours. So this year’s DLDay emphasizes the need for greater digital equity and expanding digital learning opportunities for students, both inside and outside of school.
