Digital Learning Day!

As you may be aware, Digital Learning Day is a little less than a week away.  On February 1, educators all over the country will be holding conversations and sharing ideas for digital learning in our schools.  We’re doing so many great things, and we want to share it–with each other and the community!  

Collecting and sharing the wisdom, experience, and ideas of a group of people is called crowdsourcing.  It’s a new way of sharing for us and it’s a good thing.  Please take a few moments to share what you’re doing and be inspired by your colleagues.

Here’s how:

A Google Presentation has been shared with you, click here or check your Google docs home page to open it.

To access many new editing tools (and animations!) use the new presentation editor.  If you see this, you’re working in the old editor:

To switch, go to the gear icon in the uppermost right corner and select Documents Settings >> Editing tab >> Check the box for New Presentation Editor.

Open up the DLD presentation and add a slide or two.

Share how your students have used any sort of digital technology to learn or demonstrate their learning!  (some examples to get you thinking… Glogster, Prezi, VoiceThread, GoAnimate, GoogleDocs, Moodle, Twitter, todaysmeet, blogging, mobile apps, copyright-friendly image searches, multimedia production…)

 

Here are a few hints about how to edit the presentation:
