Instructional Strategy

The workshops will follow a project-based inquiry model (modeled after the URI Summer Institute in Digital Literacy) in which students will: 

  • Explore existing models for classroom digital media integration through short readings on “hot topics” in the field and process-focused artifacts from other teacher’s experiences
  • Experiment with a range of digital tools manageable for classroom environments
  • Take inventory of the technological landscape in their schools of residence 
  • Develop inquiry questions that merge new media with standard curriculum and media literacy-infused pedagogy
  • Form working groups to collaborate around similar inquiry questions during workshop time (and beyond)
  • Experiment with student activities and projects in the classroom
  • Produce and present an instructional plan (ideally featuring related authentic student work samples)
