Celebrate Digital Learning Day (February 5, 2014)


Digital Learning DayThe community is invited to join the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) in celebrating Digital Learning Day February 5, 2014. On this date, we urge everyone to give serious thought to advocating with local educators towards giving our children access to the most current technology possible to aid in academic and professional development.  On this date, adults also are encouraged to explore a multitude of tools as well, towards their own educational, personal and business goals.

According to the Digital Learning Day web site, this event is sponsored by The Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington, DC–based national policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those who are traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship. The Alliance focuses on America’s six million most at-risk secondary school students—those in the lowest achievement quartile—who are most likely to leave school without a diploma or to graduate unprepared for a productive future.

viNGN will provide information and support to those who would like to increase their knowledge using digital tools, and continues to offer the Cyberlearning Basic Digital Literacy Training to U.S. Virgin Islands residents; earning this certificate opens the door to advanced IT and professional courses online, also free (the deadline to sign up for this free digital literacy course is now extended to February 28, 2014).  Additionally, viNGN will provide links, support and assistance to those who would like to know more about digital learning.

Please follow this blog (via the sign-up tool at right) to be updated on any new developments, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!
