Digital Learning Day: Supporting Career Development Goals with Technology-Assisted Learning
On Wednesday, February 5, teachers and students will come together to celebrate the third annual Digital Learning Day. Organized by the Alliance for Excellent Education, the day’s events will recognize policies, innovative teaching and effective applications of technology that support teachers, improve learning, and helps every student achieve their highest potential.
Increased access to digital learning tools has enhanced education, learning and career development in numerous ways, especially for people with disabilities. For example, due to recent rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission, thousands of people who are deaf or visually impaired can now receive accessible communication devices so they can access the Internet to learn and work.
At Ticket to Work, technology-assisted learning helps us support the career development goals of people with disabilities who want to work. We use digital learning tools, like webinars, blogs and social media to help Social Security beneficiaries age 18 through 64 learn how Ticket to Work can help them on their journey to financial independence.
We also provide disability employment resources and tools to our followers and fans on Twitter and Facebook. On these platforms we engage people on a one-to-one level, allowing us to provide specific guidance and information about the program. Technology and digital learning have helped us provide resources to people across the country, so we are happy to celebrate Digital Learning Day and excited to see what tools emerge in the coming years.
