Digital Literacy Workshop

October 18, 2016 - October 20, 2016

Provided by the Ohio STEM Learning Network (OSLN)-Akron Hub, this three-day, 21st Century learning professional experience focuses on designing a digitally informed environment of collaboration among learners. Visual art, information literacy, and technology standards integrate to support learning using creative and critical thinking in PBL, STEM, research, and technology, as well as inquiry settings in all content areas.
This course sets the stage for the use of technology, internet, research applications, instructional tools, and Web 2.0 presentation resources. Working in a collaborative environment, participants will be able to directly translate these techniques and tools into their classroom setting.

Participants will discover how to:

  • Design, organize and implement protocols for technology use
  • Identify tools and resources to generate a cyber safety unit
  • Determine digital learning outcomes and develop a web evaluation process
  • Explore and create using Web 2.0 tools in order to communicate in multiple formats
  • Initiate an online PLC and communicate in a sustainable professional setting
