The growing use of digital media in education is a subject where the conversation often goes back and forth like a swing on a playground.
On one hand we have those who wholeheartedly embrace technology for themselves but hesitate when it comes to “exposing children to too much technology”. On the other hand there are those who have barely touched upon on the value technology can bring to their lives, and often lean on their children for assistance and advice. In between are those who talk about affordability, practicality, and the digital divide.
All of these debates aside, most are in agreement that digital tools are here to stay. And for that reason, we love it when events like Digital Learning Day come around to give us an excuse to talk more about technology in education.
What is Digital Learning Day?
Digital Learning Day is a nationwide celebration of innovative teachers and common-sense, effective applications of digital learning in America’s schools that support teachers, improve learning, and provide options for students to achieve at their highest potential.
SNAP Guided Reading Program and its Proven Effectiveness
SNAP Learning is dedicated to providing educators with quality digital reading material aligned to the Common Core. The Guided Reading program was designed using a team of reading specialists and practitioners to develop scripted lesson plans that could be used within a seven-to-ten week reading intervention.
The SNAP program includes high quality components that the National Resource Council deemed effective, including reading of continuous text, writing included in every lesson, materials selected based on students’ needs, and ongoing progress monitoring.
