The past year has been unlike any other. Most schools never have their full student population in the building, educators are simultaneously teaching students who are in the classroom and others who are online, and students can’t interact face-to-face like they’re used to. Throughout Indiana Digital Learning Month IDOE is partnering with organizations and educators to provide opportunities to learn about strengthening student learning experiences with the effective use of technology in a blended learning environment. Check out the list of events below. Also, visit the Digital Learning Day website, sign up to join the Digital Learning Day network, and make plans to celebrate Digital Learning Day on February 25.
