Digital Learning Day comes to HMS!

Mike Arsenault shared the following, exciting information with our staff about Digital Learning Day. Megan Rice had the great idea of staff members sharing which tools they're already using, so teachers trying out a new tool will have others they can collaborate with. We're all looking forward to challenging ourselves, and working together on Wednesday.

Digital Learning Day is coming up on Wednesday (February 5th).

Digital Learning Day is about giving every child the opportunity to learn in a robust digital environment everyday, with the goal of success in college and a career. At HMS I view every day as Digital Learning Day. Your lessons routinely demonstrate this.

I'd like to challenge all staff members to volunteer to try a new tool with their students on Digital Learning Day this year. At the end of the day please share which tool you used and how it went for you (I'll send the survey out on February 5th). This share out should give other teachers ideas of tools they could use in their classes in the future. If you would like some ideas of new tools to use in the classroom visit the Tech Tools for the Classroom page of the HMS Staff IntraNET site. If you need any help with using your new tool with your students please see me.
