TMS leads webinar for PBS Learning Media


Tagged: , , ,

On September 30, 2014 Rhys Daunic will represent The Media Spot, and NAMLE by leading a webinar on digital literacy for the 2014 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators.  

The innovators represent a cross-section of educators in America: rural and urban communities; public, private and charter schools; classroom teachers, school librarians, and specialist in curriculum, media and technology in grades K-12. This year-long professional development program will foster and grow a community of tech-savvy educators that will serve as ambassadors for integrating best practices in digital learning in classrooms across the country.

FOCUS: WHOLE-SCHOOL ADOPTION OF DIGITAL LITERACY THE FIRST 5 YEARS

Rhys will offer a detailed look at how NYC public K-8* Brooklyn School of Inquiry has built a whole-school media literacy program over the past 5 years. During the talk, he will show how holistic digital media literacy adoption includes staff development, integration by teachers across discipline, and eventually designated media literacy classes. He also will walk through how resources for organizing this type of integration have evolved over time.

THE WEBINAR AGENDA

GOALS

  • Reflect on how the process whole school integration with digital and media literacy is a collaborative process that evolves organically over time
  • Evaluate tools (puzzle pieces, palette, etc.) for organizing institutional progression: K-8 Scope and Sequence, Unit Plans, Pacing Calendars, Digital Literacy Planning Framework
  • Challenges: flexibility vs. structure, balancing skill development vs. meaningful curriculum integration that activates critical thinking
  • Q&A – What’s ideal vs. realistic; where do YOU start with digital media literacy?

THE LANDSCAPE WE’RE OPERATING IN

How do we bridge digital and media literacy concepts from the tech lab to the traditional classroom?
