Join educators around the state in a “Thunderclap” to elevate the message that Every Day is Digital Learning Day by announcing that February 23 is Digital Learning Day. This awareness campaign aims to share what digital learning is, spotlight innovative practices and demonstrate the effective uses of technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience.
The Thunder Clap will be released on February 23 in celebration of Digital Learning Day and reminding educators to share their innovative practices and connect with other educators across the nation by using #DLDay when they post, tweet, or snap.

To enable schools to get as early a start on reviewing the new Michigan Specific testing manuals, the College Board is making them available via Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B2A5RTO8izY6bjBUbU1RaTF6Wlk
The College Board has created a Drive folder labeled 2017 Michigan testing manuals. There are five files, each of which is a fairly large document – not suitable for email, but downloadable.
Schools will begin receiving hard copies of the manuals in mid-February. But, if you would like a preview, you can download the manuals from this folder.
