Memo Text

The Arkansas Department of Education, in partnership with the Alliance for Excellent Education, is pleased to announce its participation in the Digital Learning Day campaign. Digital Learning Day is designed to celebrate innovative teaching and highlight practices that make learning more personalized and engaging for students. Exploring digital learning can provide students opportunities to build the skills needed to succeed in college, career, and life.

 

The official Digital Learning Day, February 6, 2013, is right around the corner.  We urge you to step up and be counted TODAY as you join the wave of innovation sweeping across our nation’s schools! Participation is free and easy and is open to all interested educators in and out of school. 

 

SIGN UP

If you are a district leader or principal, please sign-up AND encourage your teachers to sign up as well.  Take five minutes to sign-up NOW at http://www.digitallearningday.org/registration/.  

 

As a registered Digital Learning Day participant, you’ll receive exclusive information including ways to participate and tips for incorporating digital tools into your daily instruction.  View some toolkits to get you started at “Take Action” at http://www.digitallearningday.org/take-action/section. Get your exclusive sneak peek link to the 2013 Digital Learning Day interactive lessons that you can use on the national celebration of Digital Learning Day on February 6, 2013.  This will provide you with an opportunity to collaborate with tens of thousands of educators nationwide to celebrate the potential of digital learning right from your own classroom or school.
