Digital Learning Day 5 Feb 2014 | Textured Literacy | Scoop.it

The Alliance for Excellent Education is planning a high-profile national (USA) Digital Learning Day celebration on February 5, 2014 in Washington, DC.

 

The day-long series of activities is the hottest ticket in town; it’s jam-packed with high-profile dignitaries, policymakers, and educational leaders who are passionate about the potential for digital learning in the nation’s public schools.

The day’s agenda includes an exciting “Digital Learning Fair” and “Making It Personal” kiosks that feature hands-on activities and lessons to demonstrate digital learning in action and real-life stories of students and teachers who have already realized this potential and are flourishing through the use of digital learning.

I especially like Google SMS: text a qustion to GOOGLE or 466453 for dictionary or dates in history. The QR-Code would be helpful for smartphones and smaller devices. 

 

Be sure to click the link to how to use Google Voice ( ( http://gettingsmart.com/blog/2011/09/how-to-use-google-voice-to-connect-with-parents-students/ ;  ) to contact parents and develop a support team for students.
