Today, February 27th, marks the ninth annual celebration of Digital Learning Day.
According to the Digital Learning Day organization, "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."
With both digital and blended learning increasing every year, it has never been more important to consider how technology, in partnership with teachers, can help improve student outcomes.
Below are 3 ways to promote and celebrate Digital Learning Day in your classroom.
3 Ways to Promote and Celebrate Digital Learning Day:
