Watch the short video above from the National Digitial Learning Day initiative.
Plan events for February 5th that will use digital learning in some way. Whether it is a quick phone poll using Poll Everywhere or allowing students to take images that represent something you are learning in class and tweet them with the proper hashtag, give technology a chance on February 5th.
You can sign up to join the national activities at http://digitallearningday.org/. They also have a great bank of lesson plans and Tips of the Day that will help you with this day.
