ITEM:  Digital Learning Day is February 17

Help Spread the Word About Digital Learning Day in New Hampshire and Put us on the Map!
As you may already know, Wednesday, February 17th has been designated as Digital Learning Day.  The New Hampshire Society for Technology in Education, together with the Office of Educational Technology at the New Hampshire Department of Education,  is helping spread the word about celebrating Digital Learning Day, and promoting the many forms of digital learning that New Hampshire schools are doing already.  We welcome you to join in and help us get some recognition for your schools, your teachers, and your amazing students!

As a grassroots effort, Digital Learning Day encourages students, teachers, leaders, and communities to be part of transforming our education system. That means thinking differently about how technology can be used to support more engaged, deeper learning opportunities for all students.  On Digital Learning Day,  thousands of schools and local communities across the country recognize great teaching practices and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes with the help of digital tools.  This recognition helps us to connect our schools to our communities and puts our students in the spotlight in order to gain appreciation for them and the great work they do.

First and foremost, please participate by adding an event or activity to the official Digital Learning Day map.  The activity you add does not have to be done on Digital Learning Day, or be part of a special celebration that you are doing in your school, though it certainly can be.  But it also can be part of the regular classroom digital learning that your students and teachers engage in on a daily basis.  Adding this information to the Digital Learning Day map, will not only help us to shine a light on the digital learning that New Hampshire students encounter every day, but also gain recognition to your school and community, as an innovative, future ready school preparing students for successful college and career opportunities.

To add your digital learning event to the map, visit http://www.digitallearningday.org/Page/423, complete and submit the simple form.  That's all it takes, and your school will appear on the Digital Learning Map.

Other ways you can participate are:
1.        Following and engaging with Digital Learning Day on Twitter (@OfficialDLDay) and onFacebook<https://www.facebook.com/NationalDigitalLearningDay>.
