This national awareness campaign is designed to celebrate innovative teachers and highlight instructional practices that strengthen and personalize learning for all students. The Digital Learning Day campaign explores how digital learning can provide teachers and students with the opportunities they deserve in an effort to build or become part of a workforce that is ready to succeed in college, a career, and life.

Celebrations and activities of all varieties are happening cross the country at the state, district, and classroom levels. In addition to the national campaign, twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia are hosting their own statewide activities to support digital learning efforts within their states. On Digital Learning Day, a virtual national town hall meeting will be held in Washington, DC along with a live webcast starting at 9:00 a.m. (ET). By developing these tools and hosting the first-ever national Digital Learning Day on February 6, 2013, the Alliance strives to build momentum for a wave of innovation that changes policies, shifts attitudes, and supports widescale adoption of these promising instructional practices nationwide.
