Invites You to Participate in the
Digital Town Hall
Wednesday, February 6, 2013
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (ET)
As part of your local Digital Learning Day activities on February 6, you are invited to tune in for the second annual Digital Town Hall, being simulcast live as part of the national Digital Learning Day celebration.
Please join Gov. Bob Wise and the Alliance for Excellent Education on February 6, 2013 to celebrate the wave of innovation sweeping across the nation’s schools. Specifically, this national celebration will culminate in the Digital Town Hall from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (ET), which will focus on how great teaching, combined with effective technology, makes a positive impact on improving America’s schools, particularly those that serve high-risk and high-poverty populations.
Moderated by Leon Harris, award-winning journalist and anchor of ABC7/WJLA-TV (Washington, DC), the Digital Town Hall will demonstrate “digital learning in action” and feature high-profile leaders from government, education leadership, and leading corporations in front of a Washington DC–based live studio audience. The agenda includes interactive polls, nationally recognized teachers and school leaders, a chat for interaction with digital viewers, and high-profile policymakers demonstrating how digital learning and technology can help transform the nation’s schools.
The Digital Town Hall will be just one of thousands of Digital Learning Day celebrations taking place across the United States in classrooms, schools, districts, and states. Last year, more than 40,000 people watched this digital event live and more than 3,500 educators participated in the live chat to share resources and best practices.
Already, Digital Learning Day boasts tens of thousands of teachers representing more than 2 million students who are planning activities, using one of the interactive lessons, or trying something new to celebrate the day. Forty-five states plus DC are hosting statewide activities, and the Alliance has been joined by more than fifty national organizations in support of digital learning in schools.
