Developing Digital Literacies

Summer Conference

How do digital tools affect our lives as individuals? As educators? How might we use digital tools to engage students in critical and creative thinking? How can we help students to understand technology as an aid to learning, rather than a distraction from it? Participants will explore these questions and more as they consider the impact of technology on literacy.


Featured speakers include Amanda Lenhart, Researcher with the Data & Society Research Institute, and practicing elementary, middle, and high school teachers, who will give classroom demonstrations.
