Alliance for Excellent Education Launches Digital Learning Day
The Digital Learning Day campaign aims to highlight a broad array of instructional strategies to expand innovation in American schools.
The Alliance for Excellent Education has invited teachers, students, parents, principals, and district administrators, as well as state and national education leaders, to engage in Digital Learning Day, a year-long campaign to celebrate bold, creative innovative teachers in classrooms across this nation.
Recently, the Alliance announced the creation of the Center for Secondary School Digital Learning and Policy to cultivate models, highlight promising practices, and develop policies to address the effective use of technology in America’s schools.
And now the Alliance asks people to join and help launch an unprecedented, collaborative effort to expand innovation into every city, town, school and classroom in America.
Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia and of the Digital Learning Council, said:
“This day will challenge education professionals and policymakers at all levels to start a conversation, make a proclamation, improve a lesson, or create a plan. There will be customized toolkits for all audiences, grades, and subjects to help you think about how you can contribute to the campaign and start the wave of innovation in your home town.”
The Digital Learning Day campaign aims to highlight a broad array of instructional strategies and approaches that use technology, including blended and online learning, formative assessment for personalized instruction, school improvement data, relevant and consistent continuing education for teachers, promotion of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and innovation, as well as broadband access for all.
The first national Digital Learning Day will be on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. The Alliance has rallied more than 20 nationally recognized core education partners to work together to rally support and action to enable digital learning everywhere.
Wise, made the announcement during an October 12 appearance with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, writes NFIL.
Gov. Wise gave details on Digital Learning Day at the Foundation for Excellence in Education’s 2011 Excellence in Action National Summit on Education Reform in San Francisco, California.
“Digital Learning Day is more than just a day,” said Wise.
“It is about building a digital learning movement that provides teachers with better tools to truly provide a quality education for every child.
