at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, featuring keynotes
by Greg Kulowiec and Heidi Hayes Jacobs!
Dr, Jacobs will present “Integrating the New Literacies into Every Classroom: Digital, Media, and Global”
Three new 21st century literacies need focused integration in curriculum planning, assessment design and teaching approaches: digital, media, and global. How can we engage every member of the school community into digital literacy upgrades? How do we help our students critique and create media that prepares them for future careers and college? How can we cultivate globally connected learners by opening the portals to our classroom? These questions will be addressed in a lively and engaging action lab.
Dr. Jacobs will share her newest model that provides practical steps in identifying each literacy in classroom practice and show their intersection in dynamic project design for learners K-12. Based on her recently released four book series with Solution Tree, Contemporary Perspectives on the New Literacies Heidi will focus on how to make the transition from dated practices to a dynamic approach with your faculty. Special attention will given to aligning to standards and mission statements.
