Digital Learning Day 2018

What do we mean by digital learning?
“Digital learning is any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. It emphasizes high-quality instruction and provides access to challenging content, feedback through formative assessment, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential” From the Alliance for Excellent Education


Have the students use digital tools ( Google Slides, Google Drawings, Thinglink, WeVideo, Pixton, BookCreator, Flipgrid) to share their own learning and post it to the teacher’s, students, or schools website.
Use Digital Learning Day to focus on Digital Citizenship with a Common Sense Media lesson on  Nearpod.
Practice content with digital tools Flocabulary and Reflex

Try a Gizmo Science or Math simulations and use the formative assessment for further discussion (check with the ITRT for the login link)

Create playlists for self-directed learning with these tools and connect them to students through Google Classroom or Seesaw assignments:

TES Teach -put together videos and interactive presentations for a complete student directed lesson.
Youtube Edu - Upload youtube videos for education to your own youtube channel by categories for each lesson.
emediaVA - free educational content searchable by VA SOL that can be “collected” in a folder for use by students.
Edpuzzle- use or create a video of content and post for students responses.
There are many ways that you can incorporate digital resources into your classroom.  It can be very overwhelming, so the idea is to take one step at a time and consider the technology that is available.
Digital learning should take place every day!
