Welcome to Medfield's District-Wide Digital Learning Day 2013

Medfield's journey to empowering teachers and promoting innovation has come center stage as we strive to prepare our students with the 21st Century Skills. This means technology plays one of the key roles as we prepare our students for their education, careers and life in the near future. Therefore, we would like to focus our district-wide PD day on technology integration into our students' learning as we participate in the nationally-recognized, Digital Learning Day on Feb. 6th.

As you approach the day, think: What does it mean to teach in the 21st Century?
