NAESP is joining more than 50 national organizations, 45 states plus the District of Columbia, and over 17,000 teachers to celebrate Digital Learning Day, taking place Wednesday, Feb. 6. Created by the Alliance for Excellent Education, Digital Learning Day is a nationwide celebration of innovative teaching and learning through digital media and technology that engages students and provides them with a rich, personalized, educational experience.
All across the nation, students, parents, and educators will be celebrating and engaging in digital learning activities. In addition to the many state events going on, a national celebration will be taking place at the Newseum in Washington D.C., including a Digital Town Hall showcasing promising practices in digital learning from around the country.
There are countless ways that principals can participate in Digital Learning Day, such as organizing an assembly highlighting digital learning in the classroom, or inviting a local businessperson to talk about new skills needed to succeed.
