Digital Learning Day

Digital Learning Day 2013 will be held on February 6, launching a variety of activities at the national and local levels. In concert with a national focus on digital learning during February, the Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) for adult learners will host its Technology and Distance Learning Symposium (TDLS) on Feb. 22–23, 2013, at Berkeley Adult School in Berkeley, CA. The symposium will feature promising practices, strategies, lesson ideas, technology integration, and distance and blended learning.

The TDLS is targeted to administrators, coordinators, and teachers who are planning for or already implementing distance, blended, and online instruction, as well as integrating technology in the classroom. Registration is open through February 14, 2013.

Adult educators may wish to access the Digital Learning Day (www) site to learn more about this national campaign to celebrate teachers and publicize successful instructional practices and effective uses of technology in classrooms. The February 6, second annual Digital Learning Day, will provide access to activities, ideas, and collaboration opportunities. To date, some 16,000 teachers representing 46 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 3.3 million students have signed up to participate.

To culminate Digital Literacy Day activities, the Alliance for Excellent Education (www) will hold a Digital Town Hall on February 6, 2013, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. (EST). The town hall will focus on how excellent teaching, combined with effective technology, can make an impact on improving America’s schools, particularly those that serve high-risk and high-poverty populations. It will profile teachers, students, schools, and districts that are implementing digital learning in innovative and successful ways. National policy and education leaders will attend as part of a live studio audience. Interested parties may sign up now to watch the live simulcast of the Digital Town Hall (www).
