On February 17, from 8:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., Littleton ESD students joined forces with the National Digital Learning Day (NDLD) visionaries to showcase innovations they have experienced thanks to vision of the District.
Digital learning is defined as, “Any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. It emphasized high-quality instruction and provided access to challenging content, feedback through formative assessment, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential to succeed in college and a career.”
Access to technology is a priority at the Littleton District so much so that over 2500 students have 1:1 laptops available for daily instruction and learning at home.
On February 17, the plan is to let the children demonstrate what this means to them. There will be a tour during which participants can expect to see how technology has enhanced learning.
Students will be applying the state standards through project based-learning, utilizing online tools, videoconferencing in connected classrooms, instruction integrating 3D printers, and students solving real-world problems.
Dr. Roger Freeman, Superintendent of Littleton Elementary School District #65, shares his support for NDLD, “For our students, the future is now. We are providing the resources and technology to ensure their learning will engage them in real world applications for their learning. Teachers have invested their time to ensure lessons are embedded with technology. We are proud of our district’s commitment, including the voter support that allowed the program to grow, and look forward to showcasing this for our business and education communities.”
According to Rebecca Coda, a National Board Certified Teacher and NDLD coordinator for the Littleton Elementary School District #65, “We welcome the public to join our three school tours and see firsthand from the students how technology is being integrated into their learning. Our community has supported the technology and we want them to see it in action. This will become an annual tradition in Littleton District and an opportunity to showcase the achievements of our students and staff.”
