Digital Learning

Maximizing student learning by leveraging instructional technology, integrating digital learning, and teaching 21st century skills.
We live in a digital age. Connectivity enables us to access information on demand and to learn anytime, anywhere. New tools make it possible for us to connect, communicate, and collaborate globally. And these tools allow everyone to create multimedia messages and share them with a worldwide audience.
As digital citizens, we must continue to learn and grow, to discover the power of new technologies, and put them to good use. Whether we are students or educators, we are all digital learners.
An early adopter and a believer in “just-in-time” (not “just-in-case”) learning, Honor delights in sharing tech tools that support instructional objectives and enhance learning. While technology can certainly help make teaching easier, its real power is in making learning richer and more meaningful for students.
