Here are a few announcements for mid-November…
Announcing Digital Learning Day – February 1, 2012: The Alliance for Excellent Education invites you – teachers, students, parents, principals, district administrators, as well as state and national education leaders – to engage in Digital Learning Day, a year-long campaign to celebrate bold, creative innovative teachers in classrooms across this nation. Digital Learning Day will challenge education professionals and policymakers at all levels to start a conversation, make a proclamation, improve a lesson, or create a plan. To help you participate in the campaign, the Alliance for Excellent Education will create and share ideas, tools and templates – including digital learning project ideas tailored for various grades and academic subjects. The first step is easy!
