Digital Learning Day

Digital Learning Day: Wednesday, February 17, 2016

All across the country, schools are undergoing a transformation in teaching and learning with the help of digital technology. As educators re-imagine school in new and different ways, Digital Learning Day provides an opportunity to collaborate with peers, share ideas, try new digital tools, and celebrate education innovation. Most importantly, it encourages everyone to play a role in the transformation of their own schools and communities.



Here are a few ideas to get you and your students on board for Digital Learning Day!


  • Use Dotstorming to support student voice for real time group brainstorming and decision making.
  • Use one of these formative assessment tools with your students: GoSoapBox, KaHoot,Quizizz, Quizalize, or Formative.
  • Try backchanneling with students using tech tools like 81Dash, Today's Meet, or Twitter.
  • Have students summarize what they are learning through images/video using Vine,Instagram video, Periscope, or SnapChat Stories.
  • Use Padlet as a KWL Chart, CDC Writing, to showcase student digital work, as a platform for collaborative research, or as a blogging platform.
  • Create an AnswerGarden to your lesson essential question.
  • Let students use ThingLink to create interactive projects.
  • Encourage students to add augmented reality to a project/assignment using Aurasma.


Whatever you decide to do to participate in Digital Learning Day please be sure to take pictures/video and post to social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) using the hashtags #DLDay & #mcslearn.
