Digital Learning Day

Thursday, February 25, 2021
Digital Learning Day

Digital Learning Day or #DLDay is an online celebration where educators share great ideas, amazing stories, and promising practices through social media and within their own schools and communities. Thousands of local events, interactive activities, and lessons mark the importance of innovation in schools and remind district leaders that every day should be a digital learning day in public school classrooms.

Now, more than ever, digital learning is not confined to a school or classroom. Instead learning is mobile and should be available to students anytime and anywhere. Whether learning happens at home, school, a library, or local coffee shop it must be high-quality, customizable, and equitable for each and every student.

Although current circumstances created by a global pandemic are undesirable, they offer district, school, and classroom leaders an opportunity to transform the policies and daily practices that guide teaching and learning. Through collaborative leadership, educators can redesign the school experience and deliver on the potential digital learning holds for creating a workforce that truly is future ready.

Located adjacent to the National Security Agency (NSA) in Maryland, the NCM houses a priceless collection of artifacts that represent our Nation's history in code making and code breaking, as well as a world class library of cryptologic media. The NCMF acquires the best artifacts for the NCM and supports new educational and interactive exhibits.

The NCMF provides exceptional cryptologic programs throughout the year, encourages young minds to explore cryptology and innovation through valued awards, and hosts educational, cryptology-related exhibits at various community events.

As part of the Foundation's partnership with NSA to build the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation - Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (CCEI-NCM), the NCMF also serves as a leader in the field of cybersecurity - striving to provide the best in educational resources and programs.
