What is Digital Learning Day?

The MSD of Pike Township has put a strong emphasis on digital learning to provide students with the digital skills that are valued beyond the K-12 educational setting. This allows for learning outside the traditional bricks and mortar-learning environment. Students may collaborate virtually with each other while continuing their learning and teachers are accessible to help students with their online experience. This blended learning environment often referred to as an eLearning Day, can keep learning progressing during teacher professional development, snow days or other inclement weather, or other events when considered necessary. Pike Township will utilize Canvas (online learning platform) as a central space for lessons, where teachers may choose to provide instructions via a recorded message or video.  Students will manage their learning and find the lessons engaging. As parents, you may view the student assignments and finished products via your observation code.
