Digital Learning Day represents a set of activities across the United States that occur all year long and will culminate in a national celebration in Washington, DC on February 6, 2013.
It celebrates teachers and shines a spotlight on successful instructional practice and effective use of technology in classrooms across the country. The inaugural Digital Learning Day boasted tens of thousands of educators representing nearly 2 million students.
This year's Digital Learning Day is gaining momentum with ongoing activities, ideas, and collaboration opportunities leading up to February 6, 2013.
Join the wave of education champions who seek to engage students, celebrate and empower teachers, and create a healthy learning environment, personalized for every child.
The event focuses on teaching practice, rather than on specific technology tools.
The official Digital Learning Day website is a great resource and has additional information on the nationally recognized event.
