Digital Learning Day 2014

In an effort to support the effective use of technology to improve education for all students,  Digital Learning Day was celebrated around the globe on February 5, 2014. 

Digital Learning Day is about giving every child the opportunity to learn in a robust digital environment everyday, with the goal of success in college and a career. 

The weather affected our OHS Digital Learning Day plans a little, but we still celebrated our digital learning in 8th grade English in a variety of ways.  Students kept a 24hr “Digitial Lifestyle” log and then analyzed the results. We watched a bit of a live webcast of the National Digital Learning Policy panel.  Then we viewed “Day in the Life of a 24-7 Learning Student” (from the first year of 24/7 Learning at OHS) from which we discussed how things have changed.

In addition to our MacBooks we used personal digital devices to take polls, send tweets, and blog about digital learning both past, present, and future.
