DAILY INSIGHT: Digital Learning Day - February 1st

By Leigh Graves Wolf, CIO Advisor

What is Digital Learning Day? Started by the Alliance for Learning, and in partnership with the National Writing Project,

"Digital Learning Day will celebrate innovative teaching practices that make learning more personalized and engaging and encourage exploration of how digital learning can provide more students with more opportunities to get the skills they need to succeed in college, career, and life." (via NWP)

Digital Learning Day is an opportunity to start conversations, try new technologies, and showcase success. The Master of Arts in Educational Technology program at Michigan State University will be celebrating Digital Learning Day by asking our community to try something new and celebrate and share their successes on this Tumblr blog - http://dlday2012.tumblr.com/ We are very excited to watch the conversations emerge over the next few weeks. Celebrating and sharing Digital Learning Day is easy - The National Writing project provides resources here: http://digitalis.nwp.org/site-blog/feb-1-digital-learning-day/3395 and the Alliance for Learning provides several Toolkits on their site: http://www.digitallearningday.org/toolkits/ The hashtag for the day is #DLDay - time to get sharing!
