#MAET Digital Learning Day Challenge

What is Digital Learning Day?

Started by the Alliance for Learning, and in partnership with the National Writing Project,

“Digital Learning Day will celebrate innovative teaching practices that make learning more personalized and engaging and encourage exploration of how digital learning can provide more students with more opportunities to get the skills they need to succeed in college, career, and life.” (via NWP)

This year, Digital Learning Day is on February 1. Digital Learning Day is an opportunity to start conversations, try new technologies, and showcase success. The Master of Arts in Educational Technology  will be celebrating Digital Learning Day by asking our community to try something new and celebrate and share their successes on this Tumblr blog – http://dlday2012.tumblr.com/ You can start posting your stories right now! We are very excited to watch the conversations emerge over the next few weeks.

In addition to participating in the #MAET Digital Learning Day Challenge, you can start a conversation in your learning community!  Celebrating and sharing Digital Learning Day is easy – The National Writing project provides resources here:
