Digital Learning Day is March 13


How will you celebrate DLDay?

On March 13, thousands of educators and students across the country will take part in Digital Learning Day by organizing classroom activities, school-wide events and other celebrations of innovative teaching and learning practices. The Alliance for Excellent Education will celebrate the day by partnering with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to facilitate interactive workshops and host Digital Learning Day Live! as part of the 2015 Teaching & Learning Conference

DLDay Live! will highlight examples of how great teaching, combined with effective technology, can positively impact America’s schools—particularly those that serve high-risk and high-poverty populations. Each year, more than 40,000 viewers watch our live webcast and thousands of educators participate in the live chat to share resources and best practices.

Loudon County Educators Visit Shanghai, China





From November 1-8, 2014, a group of school principals, assistant principals, instructional leaders from Knox and Loudon school and researchers from Vanderbilt’s Peabody College went to Shanghai to study and observe the TPEG practices in China.  Among the 15 participants, three principals had been to Shanghai with the first cohort of principals, 12 other members were new to the project. 

During their one-week visit to Shanghai, Tennessee educators visited six schools (two secondary and four elementary) from the Minhang District. Among the schools, half of them have significant number of students from low SES and rural migrant workers’ families, one with 100% migrant children and only receives partial government funding.  At each school, the Tennessee educators observed how teachers in Shanghai conduct joint lesson planning, classroom observations, and giving peer feedback. They also learned about the multifaceted and multilevel professional development structure and instructional support for teacher collaboration within and across schools and at the district level.  Their visit culminated in a half-day workshop at East China Normal University, where Tennessee and Shanghai principals discussed the key strategies and challenges of constructing and sustaining productive communities of practice .
