Cultivating #newliteracies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can we model and help our students develop skills in the new literacies of the digital world? How does one "craft a tweet"? What are the nuances of hashtagging? What are the aesthetics necessary for effective vlogging? How do we cultivate and maintain a positive presence in social media? Our students are the "prosumer", publishing generation and require social and media skills that transcend physical space. This presentation will offer tips, tools, and examples to assist in integrating and supporting the "new literacies" in one's classroom and beyond.
