Governor Lynch has issued a proclamation, proclaiming February 1, 2012 as Digital Learning Day in New Hampshire. Digital Learning Day is a campaign to: Celebrate great teaching; Encourage more personalized and relevant learning; and Work to ensure that every child has access to the best learning experiences. New Hampshire has joined students and thousands of educators from over 35 states in participating in the Alliance for Excellent Education's (Alliance's) first-ever Digital Learning Day on Wednesday, February 1, 2012.
This national awareness campaign is designed to celebrate innovative teachers and highlight instructional practices that strengthen and personalize learning for all students. The Digital Learning Day campaign explores how digital learning can provide teachers and students with the opportunities they deserve in an effort to build or become part of a workforce that is ready to succeed in college, a career, and life.
Celebrations and activities of all varieties are happening across the country at the state, district, and classroom levels. In addition to the national campaign, states and the District of Columbia are hosting their own statewide activities to support digital learning efforts within their states. On Digital Learning Day, a virtual national town hall meeting will be held in Washington, DC along with a live webcast starting at 9:00 a.m. (ET). By developing these tools and hosting the first-ever national Digital Learning Day on February 1, 2012, the Alliance for Excellent Education strives to build momentum for a wave of innovation that changes policies, shifts attitudes, and supports widescale adoption of these promising instructional practices across the nation.
