Today is Digital Learning Day: A Gift For You



When I opened up my email today, I received a Free eBook as a gift from Sunburst.  My school district currently uses their Type to Learn 4 Program, so they sent me a gift in lieu of Digital Learning Day.  I never knew how passionate Sunburst was about education until I read their new eBook.  If you choose to read it, I hope that you find it useful and share it out, for the love of digital learning!



Email to me on February 1, 2012:  Digital Learning Day


Today is Digital Learning Day!

“To succeed in the 21st century, all students will need to perform to high standards and acquire mastery of core subject material. All students also will need to gain the cognitive and social skills that enable them to deal with the complex problems of our age” (Partnership for 21st Century Skills, 2007).

Today, a nationwide celebration is 
taking place. This special day has been selected to educate the world on how digital education can provide both teachers and students with engaging and rewarding learning experiences. In recognition of the national event and to give you more insight into why we do what we do,Sunburst Digital is offering you this free eBook entitled "Identifying High Quality Academic Digital Content."


For Digital Learning Day thousands of teachers, over one million students, and hundreds of school districts are banding together to show why they believe digital tools are vital in improving student achievement outcomes in today's ever-changing world.

In recent years, there has been an explosion of curriculum solutions capable of providing unique ways to inspire, engage, and motivate learners.
