Supporting Literacy in a Connected World

Ignite Learning

Join us on Saturday, May 7 at Crossroads North Middle School in South Brunswick
from 8:30 AM till 3:00 PM for our literacy unConference! Educators, school librarians, and administrators are invited to participate in this day of discussion around the ways we support learners in the development of their literacy skills. Whether you want to explore tips for teaching information literacy, would like to share your success with print literacy, or are wondering about ways to address other kinds of literacies, this day is for you.

No keynotes, no panels, no spectators allowed! Come and share even if you did not submit a topic. Our focus is on networking, informal peer-to-peer learning, PLN building and sharing!
