Digital Learning Day in Region 14

Digital Learning Day in Region 14

Students in Region 14 marked worldwide Digital Learning Day February 23, 2017 by showcasing the many innovative instructional technology programs that are helping to improve their learning experiences both in and out of the classroom.

Students in the district's four schools participated in different Digital Learning Day activities in their classrooms and Library Media Centers. Some of the areas showcased included virtual museum visits, designing games and apps on their chrome books and even students attempting to reconstruct a computer from the ground up.

Digital Learning Day, now in its fifth year, started in 2012 as a grassroots effort to highlight great teaching practices and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes.

Digital learning encompasses many different facets, tools, and applications to support and empower teachers and students, including online courses, blended or hybrid learning, or digital content and resources. Additionally, digital learning can be used for professional learning opportunities for teachers and to provide personalized learning experiences for students. The DLD effort is now a world wide effort that has enhanced the role of the teacher in America's classrooms through a variety of digital devices, educational software and mobile apps continuously developed for learners everywhere.
