Celebrate Digital Learning Day!
by Joe Strechay
February 1st is nearly upon us. You may be wondering, "What's the significance of that?" Well, it is not Groundhog Day. That is February 2nd. It is not Valentine's Day. That is February 14th. Nor is it Presidents' Day, which is February 20th. It will be Digital Learning Day, a nationwide celebration of online learning, technology, and educational systems.
The celebration honors the great innovation that has been made in the delivery of educational content via webinar, webcast, podcast, eLearning courses, apps, and more. It truly is an exciting time for education because this allows people in remote areas to access learning content and continue their education. I have personally taken a number of online classes and viewed webinars, webcasts, and listened to podcasts. I love my iPhone, which gives me access to amazing educational content via apps.
The American Foundation for the Blind offers digital learning through online publications, webinars, and online courses available through its fully accessible eLearning Center. You can find courses on aging, vision loss, and employment. There are a number of great courses to choose from, with more on the way. Please check them out and let us know what you would like to learn about in the future.
Additionally, the eLearning Center and AFB CareerConnect offer the Job Seeker's Toolkit, a free self-paced, online course on the employment process. The course is aimed at helping teens and young adults prepare for employment. Navigate and become more self-aware, build tools such as your resume and cover letter, and prepare for that interview!
How do you access educational content and courses electronically? Let us know!
