ODE and partners showcasing digital learning tools and resources daily from 2/1-2/29
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Governor John Kasich has declared today Digital Learning Day in Ohio, joining more than 30 states in recognizing innovative teaching and learning through digital media and technology that engages students and provides them with a rich, personalized educational experience. Additionally, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and a host of partners will continue the initiative throughout February by providing daily examples of digital learning being used in Ohio classrooms and links to resources and tools that educators can incorporate into their lesson plans.
“Today’s reality is that students use technology for entertainment and social interaction, but the educational community is still catching up in providing opportunities for students to use that same technology to motivate their learning,” said Stan Heffner, Ohio Superintendent for Public Instruction. “By expanding digital learning options, school can happen anytime, anywhere and as often as students need.”
