Trying One New Thing for Digital Learning Day

Blog Post


Digital Learning Day encourages everyone—teachers, librarians, school leaders, and parents—to participate, regardless of experience, in the exploration of digital teaching practices by starting a conversation, trying one new thing, and showcasing success.

Digital Is has many great resources about educators trying something new with their students, whether it’s a new digital tool or a new conception of what is possible.

<p>I think that teaching in this era is so exciting, yet we have to be sure to THOUGHTFULLY use digital sources and material to further engage our students and enrich their learning experience and outcomes. I have found many valuable ways to not only use digital texts and videos but use Twitter, blogs, cell phones, and chat rooms to bring all students into the conversation and enable hands-on learning to take place. I am a community college English instructor and also an editor for Gleeditions.com. I urge you all to use our free or low cost resources and join our community! We have free Common Core texts, annotated Shakespeare and Twain (Gleeditions), free video clips from great theatrical productions, and a monthly literary news page. We are on the cutting edge of digital learning and are here to help students and teachers bring classic literature into the 21st century. </p>
