Celebrating Digital Learning Day

In the ten years since Digital Learning Day efforts were kicked off by the Alliance for Excellent Education, remote learning and instruction have evolved by leaps, bounds, and pandemics.

 

Digital Learning Day is a campaign that grows the network of instructors passionate about improving the online learning landscape. We are particularly excited to nerd out over:

 

- Tomorrow’s webinar on Future Ready School across the US

- Free resources from diverse subjects, grades, and geographic regions
 

Why are you fired up about Digital Learning?
