What are your plans for National Digital Learning Day on February 1, 2012?
Building upon a growing movement, the National Writing Project (NWP), is calling on teachers, schools, principals, community leaders, parents, and students to participate in the inaugural national Digital Learning Day on February 1, 2012. An effort of the Alliance for Excellent Education, Digital Learning Day links together a wide range of states, organizations, and corporate partners to call attention to the powerful work going on in the many districts and classrooms where educators are making thoughtful use of the potential of digital tools.
The website, DigitalLearningDay.org, offers customized toolkits for all audiences, grades, and subjects to help you think about how you can contribute to the campaign. Teachers, principals, students, leaders, parents, and communities are invited to visit DigitalLearningDay.org today to register to receive toolkits, resources, and invitations to run-up events and activities.
The National Writing Project has several digital writing initiatives in place, including Digital Is and Because Digital Writing Matters, which examines what teachers, administrators, and parents can do to help schools meet the challenges of digital writing and to equip students with the technology-related communication skills they need to thrive in our information-rich, high-speed, high-tech culture.
