MSET sponsors and supports many events throughout the year with the goal of providing professional development and networking opportunities for our members. This location is meant to be a hub for professional learning events -- MSET and non-MSET members. Many of our members are well versed in multiple professional learning arenas, and MSET wishes to support the promotion of all professional learning in the state as well as in surrounding areas.

    What do we mean by digital learning?

    Digital learning is any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience. It emphasizes high-quality instruction and provides access to challenging content, feedback through formative assessment, opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere, and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential to succeed in college and a career.

    Digital learning encompasses many different facets, tools, and applications to support and empower teachers and students, including online courses, blended or hybrid learning, or digital content and resources. Additionally, digital learning can be used for professional learning opportunities for teachers and to provide personalized learning experiences for students.

    Digital learning advances school reform by increasing equity and access to educational opportunities, improving effectiveness and productivity of teachers and administrators, providing student-centered learning to ensure college and career readiness for all students, and recognizing teachers as education designers.

    Why celebrate Digital Learning Day?

    With so many new types of digital devices, educational software and mobile apps continuously developed, it’s hard to keep up with the latest and greatest advancements in educational technology. In some classrooms and out-of-school programs across the country, educators are doing some pretty amazing things with technology. Yet, these pockets of innovation are confined to a small number of schools and communities. Digital Learning Day was started as a way to actively spread innovative practices and ensure that all youth have access to high-quality digital learning opportunities no matter where they live.

    Started in 2012, Digital Learning Day has provided a powerful venue for education leaders to highlight great teaching practice and showcase innovative teachers, leaders, and instructional technology programs that are improving student outcomes. This grassroots effort blossomed into a massive nationwide celebration as teachers realized that Digital Learning Day is not about technology, it’s about learning. It’s not about laying off teachers for laptops, it’s about enhancing the role of the teacher in America’s classrooms. Digital Learning Day promotes the effective use of modern day tools afforded to every other industry to improve the learning experience in K-12 public schools.

    Why Breakthrough Mindsets?

    We are in a moment of rapid and profound change. Artificial Intelligence and other technologies provide new opportunities for learning and school operations while stretching the expectations of technology leaders. How do we embrace mindsets to lead through this change? How do we move from break/fix operational support to implementing a strategic vision? How can responsible technology leadership shape hearts and minds? CoSN2020 -- Breakthrough Mindsets: Leading Meaningful Change -- explores transformational technology leadership that positively changes the trajectory of our students and impact learning.
