If you use technology almost every day in your classroom, why should you make a big deal about it one day each year? Primarily, to spread the word about all the amazing things you are doing every single day with your students. Digital Learning Day is designed to amplify your story. By highlighting your students’ use of technology, you are helping others know how technology is helping your students to research, create, collaborate, and present in ways that are not possible without the digital tools you have in your classroom.
This year’s Digital Learning Day is February 27. Alliance for Excellent Education started Digital Learning Day in 2012 and it has been growing ever since. The day is designed to celebrate all the great work that you are doing in your classroom, school, and district. You can do this by letting others know how your students are using technology on this specific day using social media (#DLDay @OFFICIALDLDAY), adding your DLDay event to their map, and contacting your local media. Don’t be shy! Let others know all the great things that are happening in your classroom!
