February 5 is Digital Learning Day in the US and Barracuda will be celebrating!
What's Digital Learning Day? So glad you asked 🙂
Digital Learning Day is a K12 activity organized by the Digital Learning Policy Center (DLPC). The ultimate vision of DLPC is that all of our kids graduate from high school with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful. This can only happen if our students have access to effective applications of technology in their schools. Digital Learning Day (DLDay) is a nationwide celebration of these efforts and the people who make digital learning possible in their schools.
Barracuda is joining the celebration – extending Digital Learning Day for the rest of the month. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be featuring some of the DLDay videos right here, kicking off later today with a Jackson County ISD video on building engineering into the curriculum. Be sure to check in with us every weekday to see the latest videos from around the country.
And to sweeten this celebration, we’ll be giving away some cool cash prizes. That’s right – we want to hear from you! Put together the best digital presentation you can and show us how digital learning works for you.
Here are the particulars:
