DEN Digital Learning Day

Join the DEN Community as we highlight some of the great digital learning that's occurring in classrooms powered by Discovery Education. Digital Learning Day is February 5th, 2014.

 

What is DEN Digital Learning Day?


Digital Learning Day, organized by the Alliance for Excellent Education, is an annual celebration of innovative teachers and common-sense, effective applications of digital learning in schools that support teachers, improve learning, and provide options for students to achieve at their highest potential.

DEN Digital Learning Day aims to take this idea further and highlight the wonderful things DEN Community members are doing in classrooms across the North America.


 

A Day in the Life of a Discovery Educator


For members of the Discovery Educator Network, digital learning is not just a day, but a way of life.  Below, take a look at "A Day in the Life of the DEN: The Movie."  This short film will feature numerous DEN members and their daily routines involving the Discovery Educator Network. 


From early morning until late at night, members of the Discovery Educator Network engage in a variety of activities and learning utilizing the power of technology. As part of Digital Learning Day 2014 this video showcases a sampling of 20 of these 1,000,000 educators in their day to day work. We're proud of these teachers and the difference they make for learners.


Leading up to DEN Digital Learning Day


Prior to February 5th, there are several things you can do to showcase how you are using Discovery Education resources with your students and in your classroom.  Below are four suggestions, but feel free to send us something else that you feel exhibits digital learning.
  • Short video clips of students learning digitally with Discovery Education resources (15-30 seconds)
  • Artifacts from an S.O.S. lesson (photos videos, reflections)

  • A Board created with Discovery Education Board Builder showing digital learning
Submit your information using this form.
