This Is Digital Learning Day!


The digital revolution has given us unparallelled access to information, thus empowering all of us to do our own research, education and learning. This day celebrates the use of digital technology in learning.

Digital learning is sometimes called e-learning. Flipped classrooms and video lectures are also examples of digital learning.  Want to find out more? Google digital learning. Remember, your never too old to learn!
