Want to know how we can improve our schools using technology? Want to know how your son/daughter's education can be more effective? Today is the day to watch Digital Learning Day. It is happening all day.

You can see teachers and students talking about what works in the classroom using technology. It is being broadcast on the website Digital Learning Day.

Today at 1 p.m. EST, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will be speaking at a Town Hall Meeting. Anyone can pose a question through the website.

There are many videos showing effective teaching in all subject areas -- math, science, social studies, English, journalism. The videos will be available on line if you miss the actual broadcast.
