Digital Learning and eConnect


Digital Learning Day 2019 was February 28th and Maryland’s theme this year was “Maryland Chooses Civility”.  MSDE asked each of the Local School Systems to submit a video representation of their students "Choosing Civility".   This year’s project allowed students to use digital tools to show how they Choose Civility in their school and community. The completed presentation contains original content submitted by Local School Systems.  For more about Digital Learning Day visit the Digital Learning Day website. For more information about the Choose Civility Campaign, visit the Choose Civility website from Howard County Public Libraries.
