Hosted by the Alliance for Excellent Education, Digital Learning Day is a national celebration of educators that shines a spotlight on successful instructional technology practice in classrooms across the country. As thousands of students, educators, parents and community members across the nation join together to celebrate the power of technology in the classroom, we would like to take a few minutes to celebrate all the ways MediaCAST plays a role in digital learning.
What is Digital Learning?
Defined as “any instructional practice that is effectively using technology to strengthen the student learning experience,” digital learning is a very broad term and can include anything from incorporating digital resources into lessons to recording a lesson for on-demand viewing and everything in between.
How Can MediaCAST Help with Digital Learning?
Here are a few ways MediaCAST helps with digital learning:
- Create a content of digital resources that can be accessed on-demand 24/7
- Lecture Capture makes it easy for teachers to record their lesson for student viewing
- Provide the ability to easily add digital resources such as video, images and audio to lessons
- Create a place for teachers to store and share flipped class lessons
- Enable educators to easily share and retrieve resources from student’s mobile devices with the Mobile Learning Content Manager
- Add digital media to Blackboard and Moodle courses
- Easily record and broadcast student created morning announcements with an OnLocation Cart
Continuing the Celebration
While the Digital Learning Day celebration happens only once a year, digital learning is something that should be encouraged and celebrated everyday within the classroom. Incorporating digital learning into the classroom makes learning more engaging and relevant to students.
