PPS to Participate in Digital Learning Day

Parents for Public Schools is pleased to announce that we are a core partner in the Alliance for Excellent Education's 2013 “Digital Learning Day” campaign. Digital Learning Day is a nationwide celebration of innovative teaching and learning through digital media and technology that engages students and provides them with a rich, personalized, educational experience. The inaugural Digital Learning Day—held February 1, 2012—quickly gained momentum as a grassroots effort in states, districts, schools, and classrooms. It highlighted and celebrated successful models, great teaching practice, and effective uses of technology to improve learning for all students. This year’s campaign is building on that momentum and will culminate with a national town hall meeting on February 6, 2013 to celebrate participants across the nation.

PPS and our 18 chapters in 12 states are proud to support the efforts of the Alliance for Excellent Education by encouraging our members and other education stakeholders to sign-up and participate in the Digital Learning Day campaign. PPS knows the importance of technology in learning and has committed itself to utilizing new technology – such as e-readers – in our parent engagement work. Digital Learning Day will be an opportunity for our parents to “beat the drum” and bring attention to this important issue.

Please help build this wave for innovation, personalized learning, and great teaching by participating in the Digital Learning Day campaign effort.
