Nearly 25,000 teachers, millions of students, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park, and U.S. Representative George Miller (D-CA), are joining the Alliance for Excellent Education tomorrow, February 6, for the second annual Digital Learning Day. Digital Learning Day is a national campaign that promotes digital learning and spotlights successful instructional technology practice in K–12 public school classrooms across the country.
Educators from across the country will participate in Digital Learning Day by giving interactive digital lessons, collaborating with colleagues over the internet, or simply trying something new with technology in their classrooms. Throughout the day, participating teachers, education leaders, and others can interact with digital teaching experts and each other through a series of live online chats being held at http://www.digitallearningday.org/chat. Additionally, Rep. Miller will be “taking over” the Digital Learning Day Facebook page from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. (ET) at http://www.facebook.com/NationalDigitalLearningDay.
The morning demonstrations will be followed by the Digital Town Hall, which is being simulcast live from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. (ET) for educators, parents, and the public to view at http://wpc.1806.edgecastcdn.net/001806/aee/dld.html.
