Classrooms throughout Valley View School District 365U will once again join school districts across the world in celebrating Digital Learning Day, a Feb. 23 event that promotes the use of digital devices, educational software, mobile apps and online resources in 21st century classrooms.
“Last year, our technology team focused on bringing new, trending technology to schools with our Makerspace Road Show,” said VVSD Instructional Technology Specialist Mike de Leon. “Since then, we’ve worked with many schools to purchase items such as 3D printers, Spheros, Lego Mindstorms and Ozobots for their own Makerspaces."
“Our goal this year is to encourage teachers to share how they are using these new digital tools in their classrooms,” said VVSD Digital Learning Specialist Nicole Eimer. “We’re looking forward to seeing examples of creative lesson plans, successful student engagement, and collaboration between classrooms and schools.”
Digital Learning Day - Innovate. Collaborate. Inspire.
