Digital Technology Continues to Grow in the Classroom
As education uses more technology, it becomes increasingly important to stay up to date. Tuesday was Digital Learning Day across West Virginia, and across the US, and about 2 million students participated through a digital town hall meeting live-streamed into classrooms, and other technology sharing. And moving forward, teachers are encouraged to continue to make use of technology in classroooms. The website, www.digitallearningday.org gives examples of the ways teachers can digital technology incorporate into their lesson plans. West Virginia has a special connection to Digital Learning Day. It was inspired in part by Mountainview Elementary in Morgantown, which started a No Paper, No Pencil Challenge to get students accustomed to working with new technology. The organizing alliance for Digital Learning Day is led by former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise.
