January 19, 2014: Celebrate Digital Learning!
As you prepare for Digital Learning Day (#DLDay) -- February 5, 2014 -- join two NCTE members and edubloggers for a conversation about classroom technology's past, present, and future.
Kevin Hodgson (@dogtrax) and Troy Hicks (@hickstro) will host #nctechat on Sunday, January 19th, 8 PM EST, and will invite you to consider three big questions while sharing tech tips and teaching tools:
To begin, what was your first brush with technology and how did it change the way you wrote, read, and interacted with others?
As you think about your classroom right now, what are your plans for Digital Learning Day this year? With critics concerned that technology has become more and more of a distraction, how can we help our students stay focused on smart, intentional work?
Finally, what are you looking forward to learning, trying, or making in 2014?
Join us for a conversation about the history of Digital Learning Day and great ideas for teaching digital reading and writing in your English classes!
