Digital Learning Day Hangout Conversation

Today at South Eastern School District we had the opportunity to participate in a Digital Learning Hangout conversation with representatives from each of our district buildings.  Below are the slides that we used to drive our conversation.


Thank you to Mrs. Smith, Mr. Schiefen, Mr. Marks, Mr. Diehl, Mrs. Spangenberger, Mrs. Coleman, and Mr. Snyder.  

Along with the conversation, we broadcasted live to YouTube so anyone in the district or parents at home or work could watch and see their kids speaking about Digital Learning.

Digital Learning Day: With so many new types of digital devices, educational software and mobile apps continuously developed, it’s hard to keep up with the latest and greatest advancements in educational technology. In some classrooms and out-of-school programs across the country, educators are doing some pretty amazing things with technology. Yet, these pockets of innovation are confined to a small number of schools and communities. Digital Learning Day was started as a way to actively spread innovative practices and ensure that all youth have access to high-quality digital learning opportunities no matter where they live.Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day has provided a powerful venue for education leaders to highlight great teaching practice and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes. This grassroots effort blossomed into a massive nationwide celebration as teachers realized that Digital Learning Day is not about technology, it’s about learning. It’s not about laying off teachers for laptops, it’s about enhancing the role of the teacher in America’s classrooms. Digital Learning Day promotes the effective use of modern day tools afforded to every other industry to improve the learning experience in K-12 public schools

At South Eastern School District, under the leadership of Dr. Rona Kaufmann, we have embarked on a Digital Learning path toward more student-centered, voice and choice, creative, individualized student learning and creating.  We are not there and don't claim to be.  This process is lead by teachers in the classrooms taking risks and students pushing the teachers to do more and try more.  As you will hear in the video, we are on the continuum and moving in the right direction.  The School Board and Administration continue to support and promote innovative ideas and our teachers and students continue to impress.  I look forward to what is next for South Eastern School District as far as Digital Learning and how we do school.

Thank you to Mrs. Smith, Mr. Schiefen, Mr. Marks, Mr. Diehl, Mrs. Spangenberger, Mrs. Coleman, and Mr. Snyder.
