How are you celebrating Digital Learning Day (http://www.digitallearningday.org) on Friday, March 13th? This is a day where teachers share innovative digital teaching practices that improve student outcomes and ensure all students have access to digital learning opportunities.
On NextLesson.org, there are a number of ways in which students can learn and strengthen their technology skills. See our Virtual Learning for Snow Days blog post to learn how to engage students from anywhere using technology.
Our Rank & Reason online tool is a great way to get your students thinking critically while using technology. Rank & Reason activities call students to rank and justify major ideas, problems, characteristics, solutions, choices and more. These can be done on the computer individually or in groups and lead to stimulating classroom discussions.
In addition, here are a number of lessons where students can master technology and start on their way to a fruitful career:
- How to Speak Computer, Grades 1-2
- Start from Scratch – Computer Programming, Grades 4-5
- Coding for Beginners – Hackaton, Grades 5-8
- Hackathon 2, Grades 5-11
