Digital Learning Day 2014

By Jennifer Cobb

Today is Digital Learning Day, “a nationwide celebration of innovative teachers and common-sense, effective applications of digital learning in America’s schools that support teachers, improve learning, and provide options for students to achieve at their highest potential.”

Digital Learning Day is about giving every child the opportunity to learn in a robust digital environment everyday, with the goal of success in college and a career. Connect South Carolina and our teams across the nation continue to work with students and educators to connect classrooms and close the digital divide.

Digital learning allows teachers and students the opportunity to embrace individualization, diverse learning styles , technology and data driven instruction, all of which are imperative in today's technological society.

During his State of the Union Address, President Obama pledged, through collaborative efforts between companies like Verizon, Sprint, Apple, and Microsoft, to assist 15,000 schools and 20 million students across the country over the next two years. By connecting 99% of American students to high-speed broadband to better enable the latest tools to accelerate learning, students are guaranteed access to a world-class education and the opportunity to obtain the digital skills necessary for college and professional success.
