Attached are pictures of students in my English classroom using glogster to create interactive posters celebrating digital learning day. The goal of the posters were to celebrate how technology is used to assist us in education today, and how it has changed through the years. We held a classroom contest and voted on the best poster to award students with extra credit. The students pictured are ninth and tenth grade students in Sara Rose's English classes at Tug Valley High School in Mingo County.
I have attached 4 photos of students working on Digital Learning Projects at DuPont Middle School. Two photos are of the 1A Virtual Spanish class and two are of the 1B Virtual Spanish class. One included a photo of Malyka working with a student. Great facilitators there…Kathy Coyle and Rosemary Atkinson! Gracias,

Creating that sacred high school item,the yearbook, with online program, Pictavo, are students at Buckhannon-Upshur High School.
My students are elated to be able to work on the yearbook at home, at school or at the library using our new web-based program.
My name is Nancy Null. I teach special education at Ceredo Elementary in Wayne County. I use technology on a daily basis to engage students who have difficulty staying on task. I find it is a great multi-sensory tool that also benefits students with learning disabilities. Please find attached a pic of one of my first grade students practicing spelling words on the iPad.
Sherman Junior High School teachers Caitlin Pcholinsky (reading-language arts) and Jacob Messer (special education) try to incorporate digital learning in their inclusion classes every day, and Wednesday (aka Digital Learning Day) was no different. First, the seventh- and eighth-grade students listened to Chapter 6 of "The Hunger Games" on the 13 iPods that Mr. Messer won during the West Virginia Department of Education's state technology conference while reading along in their books (photos attached). Next, they answered reading comprehension questions about the chapter. Finally, they replied to a prompt and voted in a poll about "The Hunger Games" on www.collaborizeclassroom.com (photos to follow).
