Digital Literacies

DPL PEI Tracks Oct 03, 2020

We cannot develop students’ digital literacies without developing those of educators, as models and mentors. Digital skills focus on what and how, while digital literacies consider why, when, who, and for whom, as well. This track focuses on the development of participatory, networked literacies that enable collaboration, contribution, and critical sense-making within information abundance. It fosters a critical orientation toward tools, portfolios, and digital presence within networks. Participants will discuss and experiment with various technological tools from the chalkboard to moveable chairs, computers, mobile devices, social media platforms, and learning management systems. Individual sessions and workshops will focus on teaching philosophies, discernment practices for using digital tools in courses, emergent learning, digital composition, and discussions of the impact of the digital on traditional and critical pedagogies.
