Today is Digital Learning Day! Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day is a way for educators to highlight innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes through digital learning. It is important to note, that the focus of this day is not about the technology, but instead about the learning. You can learn about the national initiative here.
According to the Center For Digital Learning:
“Digital learning advances school reform by increasing equity and access to educational opportunities, improving effectiveness and productivity of teachers and administrators, providing student-centered learning to ensure college and career readiness for all students, and recognizing teachers as education designers.”
This type of innovative digital learning occurs every day in FWSU, however, this is a great way for our schools to celebrate and connect with other schools around the nation. Each of the schools participating signed up and documented their participation in this celebration of learning.
