Tomorrow is Digital Learning Day across the country and Hardin-Simmons University, where I am interim instructional designer, received an online shout-out and website placement for our Canvas Cowboy Innovator Event. “Digital Learning Day is a day to celebrate the great things that digitally happen EVERY Day in classrooms around our country. It is NOT about using digital tools for one day.” -From a DLDay Twitter post. #Edtechchat#DLDay
