Are you Prepared to Get Your #DLDay on and Seek new Approaches to Improving Learning Outcomes?

“Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day has provided a powerful venue for education leaders to highlight great teaching practice and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes. This grassroots effort blossomed into a massive nationwide celebration as teachers realized that Digital Learning Day is not about technology, it’s about learning.” – taken from the About DLDay web page.

Wednesday, February 17 is Digital Learning Day for 2016
(access the DLD web site here: www.digitallearningday.org).

I’ve trolled the web for resources for teachers to explore as they prepare for DLD 2016. Several sites have provided rich sets of resources for teachers to explore, specific to DLDay. Of course, IMHO, every day is digital learning day and there are so many good sites out there sharing many resources, tools, and tips.

I hope you find some great tools, tips, resources, and ideas here!

Go to http://www.balefirelabs.com to see their reviews of content apps. They use objective measures of elements necessary for deep learning: adaptability, feedback, learner support, mastery, etc. There are too many apps claiming to be educational and we’ve all been burned. This is my go to source for vetting.
