As adult educators, we have come to realize how essential digital literacy and digital resilience are for students to fully participate in classes, at work, and in daily life. We work very hard to create opportunities for equitable access by helping students acquire these critical skills. This workshop will help you organize your approach.
In this workshop, you will learn about WIOA’s definition of digital literacy, ACLS policies, and the Digital US definition of digital resilience. You will review ACLS’s recommended digital literacy standards for students and consider how they can serve as a framework for planning and instruction. You will explore what these concepts look like in real life, including examples from Teaching Skills That Matter (TSTM).
As part of this interactive workshop, you will explore the EdTech Integration Strategy Toolkit to find ideas for activities that fit your class routines and work in small groups to begin drafting an activity to use with students.
Following the workshop, you will be asked to share a final draft of your activity plan and will be given the opportunity to review other participants' plans. During this time, we will be available to check in and support your progress.
Note: After you register, our Project Coordinator Ruzica Banovic will send you a confirmation email with the link to join the webinar.
