Last week, February 1st, marked annual Digital Learning Day where thousands of teachers, administrators, even whole school districts, are encouraged to try using technology or collaborative learning to improve student performance.
Need ideas? Third graders in Washington Township, New Jersey will be learning about volcanoes by creating digital stories about them. Meanwhile, a P.E. teacher in Urbana, Ohio is using a fitness app for the iPad to help students build muscular strength.
There has been an ongoing debate about whether technology should be used in the classroom or separated altogether. Digital Learning Day is a time to celebrate the fact that technology and education can work together to improve student performance. Our blog, Technapex, explores different ways creative entrepreneurs, teachers, and administrators are implementing Digital Learning Day every day.
