Digital Learning Month


Technology and learning go hand in hand. Because digital learning encompasses a wide spectrum of tools and practices, the Ohio Department of Education, together with eTech Ohio, INFOhio, KnowledgeWorks and others are observing Digital Learning Month to highlight resources and explore how they are being used in classrooms around Ohio.

Digital learning tools and stories will be featured here throughout the month. Older stories will be archived so that by the end of the month, this page will be a valuable collection of digital learning resources.
