Digital Learning Day - Engaging Students. Celebrating Teachers. Creating Better Schools.

Participate in a Twitter Chat on Monday, October 7, from 8:00 – 9:00 pm, ET
As part of the #edtechchat, the Digital Learning Transition MOOC-Ed moderators will be guests on the weekly #edtechchat, hosted by Tom Murray from Quakertown Community School District (PA), with participation from several other MOOC-Ed experts.How Digital Ready Is Your School or District? Find Out in Less than Two Hours.
As an initial step to participating in Project 24, district leaders are encouraged to create a leadership team that will participate in a digital-readiness survey. Requiring no more than two hours to complete, this self-assessment includes a series of questions that will help districts frame their vision for student learning and specify how technology can help align these efforts to achieve higher college- and career-ready standards. Upon completion of the survey, the Alliance will provide a confidential detailed report for your district. Take a quick view of a sample report.
