Today is Digital Learning Day. A day when the possibilities, creative uses, and innovative implementers of technology in classrooms are highlighted and revered across the nation. Policy makers are paying attention and pressure for technology integration into the curriculum rises. Debates about the best tools, how to fund technology initiatives, the revision of eRate, and the equity or inequity of digital learning in certain communities arise. I appreciate all of those conversations and hope there will be some shifts that allow for all students to have improved learning experiences through technology use. But I am also struck by what I don’t hear coming from that conversation….for some, digital learning is scary.
