Written by The Current

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 starting conversations with their students. Of course, there are also a lot of great conversations going on between educators in the site!
