digital_learning_day_2014In today’s interconnected world, how students learn is increasingly reliant on digital technology. This means more than having the latest resources and gadgets; it’s fully integrating digital learning into the entire educational experience. To fully prepare students for success in college and their careers, schools and libraries everywhere need to embrace digital learning.

  1. I spent a few hours last night watching a webinar and browsing Digital Learning Day sites. The ones I took a closer look at were: 1)http://www.digitalharbor.org/ because it is a community-based after hours/summer technology learning center for city residents that does not cost the family a fortune, and I think our public schools should have after-school, weekend and summer programs for kids. 2) http://pta.org/familyreading I passed this link on to our PTA president as a suggested family activity to consider. 3) http://www.digitallearningday.org/ – to make plans for my classes. 4) http://digitallearningday.org/learn-and-explore/digital-learning-tools/arts/ This is where I began investigating the Feb. 5th day.
    Somehow, I ended up on CodeAcademy and learned a little JavaScript. I posted My Bubble Name that I hope to WOW my 3rd graders with tomorrow and get them involved in CodeAcademy the same way I got some interested in Hour of Code. I am a novice at coding but always looking to keep my class focused in the right direction with Edmodo. I hope to tune into the live broadcasting from DC, but computer lab space is limited so it may be from my IWB. I’ll look for suggestions on Edmodo. Thanks

    I will be leading a PD session for the staff at our high school showing teachers how they can use Edmodo in their classrooms and getting them to create an account and join a group.
