Excerpt from Show

Jayne Marlink, Executive Director of the California Writing Project , on taking up the idea of Digital Citizenship Month:

We started out about a year ago—actually, 2012—decided to take on sponsorship for California's Digital Learning Day, with the Alliance for Excellent Education, their first ever national Digital Learning Day. And even though that was terrific, and we had a great time, and there were wonderful activities and showcases and open houses across the state, one day was not enough."
