Digitally Yours

It has been a joy getting to know you and your district schools. Great things are happening in Region 3. January was great and February will be even better!

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it's packed with so many great celebrations. Check out the video below if you or your students are curious as to why February is the shortest month. In February, we celebrate Black History Month. ThinkCerca has 46 differentiated lessons/ resources to teach critical thinking, close reading and argumentative writing related to Black History Month. 306: African-American History also has 15 free modules for students in grades 9-12. We also celebrate Groundhog Day (Feb. 2nd), Superbowl Sunday (Feb. 7th), Mardi Gras (Feb. 9th), Valentine's Day (Feb. 14th), Presidents' Day (Feb. 15th), and Digital Learning Day (Feb. 17th).

If your district or school is doing anything special to celebrate Digital Learning Day on Wed. Feb. 17th, please let me know and I'll try to make plans to stop by. (Click here to invite @savvy_educator to your Digital Learning Day). If you post on social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) you can tag #Reg3DLD and #aamuTiM so we can all see the great things you are doing in your district.

Remember to share media showcasing instructional technology in action in your schools by accessing this folder February district IT happenings folder. Highlights from the information shared and submitted prior to the last Monday of this month will be featured in the March edition of "Experiencing IT" newsletter under the subtitle "CAPTURE IT Highlights".

Please feel free to contact me at any time. Let's continue to learn, grow and experience IT together!

Partnering to provide professional learning for your instructional technology endeavors.

Digitally yours,
