To my students in EDU 613 and EDU 642,
The 4th Annual Digital Learning Day will take place on Friday, March 13, 2015.
This is the last day of EDU 613, and the day before EDU 642 begins. I would encourage those of you in both classes to take part in the Virtual Activities of that day.
The Twitter Hashtag for this event is #DLDay ~ I will be taking shots around campus via the "Vine App" and sharing them on Twitter. Follow Digital Learning Day on Twitter: @OfficialDLDay.
I had the opportunity of attending the very first Digital Learning Day in Washington, DC ~ February 1, 2012.
I was on the committee that developed the "Digital Textbook Playbook".
