Celebrate Digital Learning Day with PAEA Learning

By Amanda Gunter, MSFebruary 28, 2019

PAEA is making its mark in the digital space and is excited to participate in Digital Learning Day today.

Digital Learning Day is a nationwide event and an opportunity for educators, leaders, and students to come together and explore how learning and teaching experiences can be improved through the use of technology.

We believe that dedicating time for your professional development will help support your daily work, improve student learning outcomes, and, ultimately, positively impact PAEA’s mission: health for all.

At PAEA, we know what busy lives our members lead — both professionally and personally. With that in mind, we are seeking to fill professional development gaps through our Digital Learning Hub. Because this is a newly launched effort, we need your help in spreading the word and getting your colleagues on board. If you or a colleague don’t already have an account, here’s a great place to start.

To help you celebrate the day, we’ve created two pathways for you to explore in our Digital Learning Hub. Pathways are on-demand learning opportunities that sequence content on a specific topic area. (Please note that you need to log in to access the content.)
