Over the past year, the landscape of digital learning has changed dramatically. Teachers who previously looked at digital tools as optional have learned how to utilize these tools for daily interaction with their students and as primary vehicles for instruction, student practice, and assessing progress. Now more than ever, it is essential to provide teachers with high quality digital learning resources and opportunities to share those resources with a broader community.
On February 25, 2021, educators from around the United States will be celebrating Digital Learning Day. Educators can join a network of over 1,700 contributors to share resources, best practices, and stories of overcoming adversity in these difficult times.
Digital Learning Day was started in 2012 by the Alliance for Excellent Education and has grown in reach and scope over the past decade. They strive to provide “high-quality, customizable, and equitable” digital learning opportunities for “each and every student”. Educators can explore their curated resources and filter by state, grade level, category, and type. They can also view resources from Google for Education and incorporate digital citizenship lessons on digital footprint and evaluating the credibility of online sources.
