Digital Learning Day - February 5, 2014

I want to encourage a game of friendly district rivalry for Digital Learning Day! As you know, we will be celebrating the effective use of technology in schools this Wednesday, February 5, 2014 in Washington, DC and across the US. We will do a special “shout out” during the national event to the district who has the most “buzz” – this includes events on the map, media attention, attendance at the virtual conference, participation in the student debates - and overall energy!

It’s not to late to encourage your teachers and principals to participate by:

· Participating in the action through the virtual conference – Live from the Library of Congress with two free webcasts.

· Taking the pledge to make a difference – Everyone should do this as it takes less than 30 seconds!

· Posting an event to our map – no matter how small or large the celebration.

· Encouraging students to join the debates – just added so check out the great topics.

· Planning a lesson or using a free tool to try something new.

Just Announced! James H. Billington, PhD, Librarian, Library of Congress, Chairman Tom Wheeler, Federal Communications Commission, and Cecilia Muñoz, Assistant to the President and Director of Domestic Policy Council, The White House will join us! The “Power Panel” is going to be great - Check out all the action including inspiring stories from schools and districts. We encourage you to sign up and spread the word about this amazing grassroots movement TODAY!

Please let me know if you have any questions. Shoot me a note to let us know you are game and we’ll be tracking your progress!
