Digital Learning Day was first launched in 2012 by Alliance for Excellent Education as a way to give innovative educators an opportunity to shine and collaborate using not only technology but human-powered projects and activities that encourage the love of learning. It has grown into a national observance, with over 2,300 hosted activities across the nation.
