Digital learning is any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. With so many digital tools available, you may find that it is difficult to keep up with the apps, devices and software that are available. But, providing digital learning opportunities is not so much about the tools you are using – instead it is about what you are doing with them.
We know that teachers throughout South Africa are doing amazing things in their classrooms using technology. Digital Learning Day was started as a way to actively spread innovative practices and ensure that all youth have access to high-quality digital learning opportunities no matter where they live.
With Digital Learning Day approaching on 22 February 2018 think about how you can:
- Share your innovative practices using digital tools with other teachers
- Get involved in a Professional Learning Community to be part of the conversation around enhancing learning opportunities for your learners
- Upgrade your skills and learn more about some of the latest trends in education through committing yourself to ongoing professional development
