Wow, tomorrow is Digital Learning Day! What's Digital Learning, and why is there a day for it, you ask? From the Digital Learning Day site: "Digital learning is any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. It emphasizes high-quality instruction and provides access to challenging content, feedback through formative assessment, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential to succeed in college and a career." So basically, it's a day for you to share the awesomeness in your classrooms! The site also has lots of videos demonstrating how technology can improve student learning, a more detailed definition of digital learning, highlights from previous events, and practical tips for connected classrooms. There's even a Twitter and Instagram hashtag for you to follow and add your own activities. #DLDay http://www.digitallearningday.org/ And, there's a webinar with panelists from the Alliance for Excellent Education. https://all4ed.org/webinar-event/digital-learning-day-2018-webinar/ Happy Digital Learning!

Wow, it's a Day of Play! Why not play with geometry? The Common Sense site has information about a fun and challenging app called Choreo Graph, a free app that allows students to animate images by rotating angles and translating objects. These moves can even be set to music! The app's companion site includes ready-made lessons to make the most of the app's features. You can open a geometry unit with the Create a Dance Move lesson, launching students into tangible (and entertaining) practice with angle measurement, angle rotation, and using coordinate pairs to describe the position and translation of objects. https://www.commonsense.org/education/app/choreo-graph Happy Choreographing!
