Digitization and miniaturization of information processing power are expanding exponentially and are changing the world, our lives, and our communities at an overwhelming speed. To be viable, schools must adapt to this new environment. We must embrace and seize technology’s potential to capture the hearts and minds of this, the first digital generation, so that the work designed for them is more engaging and respects their superior talents with digital devices and connections. (The Vision: Digital Learning)
Today (February 28, 2019) is Digital Learning Day.
Digital Learning Day was started as a way to actively spread innovative practices and ensure that all youth have access to high-quality digital learning opportunities no matter where they live. (Alliance for Excellent Education)
We know the benefits of digital learning are great – improving access and equity to high quality educational experiences, connecting teachers and students to the world around them, capturing artifacts of understanding to demonstrate learning in impactful ways, and more!
Let’s remember to focus on the learning as we celebrate Digital Learning Day.
