Literacy is the means in which we communicate with each other in order to learn. In 2016, in an ever changing world of technology, what are the essential elements of digital literacies that we can use to help support learning? In this workshop, participants will examine the 8 Essential Elements of Digital Literacies developed by Doug Belshaw. Participants will use their own contextual examples to consider the landscape of possible digital literacies and how learners are demonstrating these literacies throughout K-12 schools. The workshop will include three parts: 1) An overview of Essential Elements of Digital Literacies 2) Brainstorming Examples of Contextual Digital Artifacts that demonstrate Digital Literacies 3) A Group Discussion considering how to support Teachers in Developing Competency in Digital Literacies.
