Celebrating Digital Learning Day!
Today, Digital Learning Day is celebrated in schools and classrooms across the country. Digital learning includes both in- and out-of-classroom resources that use technology to improve instruction and education of students. Educators are sharing how they integrate all forms of technology in their daily teaching routine.
The Museum celebrates digital learning everyday through Virtual Field Trips and webinars. Although many students and teachers may not have the chance to visit the Museum, Virtual Field Trips provide an opportunity to learn about a specific topic in WWII through Museum artifacts and oral histories, archival images, wartime newsreels, maps, 1940s-era songs, and so much more. These connections encourage students to discover history outside of their classroom, and understand that the historical lens is much larger than what they encounter in their textbook. Today, we connected with a school in Dubois, Wyoming to discuss the attack on Pearl Harbor with students conducting research for their National History Day project.
The Museum can connect with almost every school via webinar software, regardless of their technology capabilities. The Museum’s next FREE webinar will be on African Americans in WWII. During the program, students will examine the fight for Double Victory, one over fascism abroad and one over discrimination and inequality at home.
The usage of technology can open up new avenues for teachers to engage their students. Help celebrate Digital Learning Day by connecting with the Museum today!
Digital learning doesn’t just happen during the school day. Check out Kid’s Corner to play games that are both fun and informative!
