Digital Learning Day was celebrated at Riverside Elementary School on February 6th with students from 2nd through 5th grades sharing technology presentations with fellow students, parents, teachers and administrators.
A variety of applications and technology tools were shared including Google docs, creating a Weebly website, downloading e-books, Wordle, Kindle Fire, education apps for iPads, Kerpoof, Inspiration, Powerpoint and many more.
What is Digital Learning Day? According to the official website, http://www.digitallearningday.org/, “Digital Learning Day represents a set of activities across the United States that occur all year long and culminates in a national celebration on February 6, 2013. Digital Learning Day celebrates teachers and students and shines a spotlight on successful instructional practice and effective use of technology in classrooms across the country. The inaugural Digital Learning Day in 2012 boasted tens of thousands of educators representing nearly 2 million students across the country.”
At Riverside, there were 28 students in total, some working independently and others with a partner, with displays set up throughout the Riverside Elementary School Library.
Our Digital Learning Day committee was made up of teachers Mrs. Rosewicz, Mrs. Dembowski, Mrs. Gauger and Mr. Podeweltz – with a special thank you to Mrs. Becker and Mrs. Fraaza for their assistance that day.
