On March 15, 2015, the Alliance for Excellent Education held a Digital Learning Day Google Hangout that explored strategies for co-creating digital learning experiences to increase student engagement.

Digital learning is an instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. It emphasizes high-quality instruction and provides access to challenging content, feedback through formative assessment, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential to succeed in college and a career.

When implementing a new lesson idea or digital device into classrooms or youth programs, developing a habit of co-creating those experiences—rather than creating them in isolation—is often the key to increasing relevancy, effectiveness, and student engagement. In Future Ready schools, the co-creation process often involves

  • Transforming physical learning spaces to be more student-centric and better support blended learning instructional practices
  • Incorporating student input on personalized, project-based learning opportunities
  • Borrowing, remixing, and partnering with other teachers and/or institutions to develop cross-disciplinary digital learning experiences

During the Google Hangout, the Alliance’s Tom Murray, joined by Steven Anderson, Erin Klein, Joe Mazza, Joe Sanfelippo, and Angela Watson, discussed what the co-creation process looks like in a Future Ready school.  Panelist also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
