Description

This session is the third in the SABES Digital Literacy series and builds upon the core concepts of the first session: Digital Literacy 101: Where to Begin! The second session is focused on Digital Literacy in Beginning and Intermediate-level ESOL Instruction: Engaging with Opportunities for Deeper Learning, October 28, 2022. In this third session, instructors of ELA and advanced-level language learners will explore ways that problem-based learning supports their learners' navigation of—and problem-solving in—technology-rich environments. Practitioners will first refine their understanding of the digital literacies that lead to digital resilience, then collaborate to analyze standards-aligned problem scenarios and projects that draw on and expand learners' digital and information literacy skills. Finally, working in context-alike teams, participants will discuss ways to adapt the session content and concepts to their own remote and in-person classes.
