CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) --Local students and teachers are joining forces to demonstrate and learn more innovative ways to incorporate technology in the classroom. Nevada school districts are taking part in the second annual national Digital Learning Day on Wednesday.

Digital Learning Day is a day of events that celebrate teachers and showcases successful instructional technology practice in the classroom.

Nevada Superintendent of Public Schools James Guthrie believes digital learning is the future of education and Nevada needs to continue to thrive and move forward with using technology in the classroom.

"More than anything it changes the role of the teacher, probably more than the students, the students are used to this already, the teachers are going to have to get used to it, but we're going to help them with more training and it's going to be an exciting future," Guthrie says.


Teachers and adminitrators from Carson, Clark, and Washoe County School Districts as well as representatives from the Nevada Department of Education will be there.

States and schools districts are planning a variety of activities to promote digital learning.

Students and teachers from Spanish Springs High School will be showcasing their C3 media academy that trains students in print, web, and video production.

Digital Learning Day activities kick off at 9 a.m. and go until 2 p.m. in the Foyer of the Legislative Building. Everyone is welcome to attend.

It would be a waste of money UNLESS and until we get good results in K-12--if the students don't know the alphabet and cannot read there is no point in anything else. Kids have been learning the alphabet with large flash cards for generations and THAT WORKS.
