Digital Learning Day
The American Library Association (ALA) Digital Literacy Taskforce is calling on all libraries to put a social media megaphone to their activities planned for Digital Learning Day, February 1.
As part of the taskforce’s efforts to raise awareness of libraries’ work in this arena and to capture stories and examples of this work, the taskforce asks library staff to tweet (using hashtag #DLDay), blog and even photograph (Flickr) and videotape (YouTube) digital literacy activities and testimonials throughout the day.
Digital Learning Day, which American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) are supporting as core partners, is a culminating event in a year-round national awareness campaign to improve teaching and learning for all children.To learn more visit http://www.districtdispatch.org/2012/01/libraries-please-share-digital-learning-day-activities/.
