The New Hampshire Society for Technology in Education (NHSTE), our ISTE Affiliate, is leading the charge to make Digital Learning Day an annual event in the Granite State. The lead event will be a Digital Learning Night, which will have face 2 face and online options for teachers. Digital Learning Night will be a time for teachers to learn about Digital Learning Day, share ideas about what they are doing, and collaborate across the state on activities they can do with their students on Digital Learning Day.
NHSTE, together with the NH Department of Education Office of Education Technology will also post information and ideas through websites, social media venues, and membership lists and listservs. Our long range goal is to get New Hampshire to recognize the first Wednesday of February as Digital Learning Day annually.

National Collaborative for Digital Equity The Collaborative was co-founded in 2013 as the Digital Opportunity Consortium, by co-chairs Dr. Robert McLaughlin and Dr. Paul Resta. Reflecting the compelling need to speak to potential investors with one voice about why and how to approach digital equity investments and initiatives systemically, we refashioned the consortium as the National Collaborative for Digital Equity. We are headquartered at New England College, in Henniker, New Hampshire.The original Digital Opportunity Consortium continues to be powered entirely by volunteers. Our aim is to close the digital divide at home for the nation's low-income schoolchildren and their families. We also help educators and those who prepare future educators and school leaders to learn about essential technology resources, how to use them in teaching and learning, and how to ensure all students enjoy full access to them.
We partner with communities, states, professional associations, companies, schools and preparation programs to provide digital access at home at the lowest possible cost to the most essential learning technology resources including broadband, computing devices, educational content across the PreK-12 curriculum, ongoing tech support, and low-interest financing even for families with poor or no credit.
Digital Literacy NH: Christa McAuliffe Sabatical 2012-2013
The Christa McAuliffe Sabbatical is awarded annually by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. It provides an opportunity for one New Hampshire teacher to explore new ways to enhance classroom teaching through a self-designed project, the results from which may be used to help enrich the teaching profession statewide. David Hobbs, an English teacher at Winnacunnet High School, received the award for his proposed project ‘Digitalliteracynh.’ He will spend the sabbatical year working with teachers around the state gathering how they promote 21st century reading and writing skills and sharing his research via a website and blog.
