Dr. Lauren Zucker (@lgzreader) and Joe Pizzo(@profjpizzo), two veteran DLC members, presented at this year’s New Jersey Educational Computing Cooperative Conference.
Lauren’s presentation, “Open Badges in the K-12 Classroom”, showed teachers how to integrate, and make, badges in their own classrooms. You can check out the link to Lauren’s presentation here.
In Joe’s demonstration, “The Color of Digi-poetry 2.0”, educators were asked to think beyond traditional poetry. Participants explored new platforms and planned ways to integrate them into existing curriculum.
Both of these excellent educators will be presenting on February 3rd, at this year’s Developing Digital Literacies Conference at Drew University!

Joe Pizzo has done it again. His recent post on the NCTE blog highlights the work of our group – and inspires us all to love teaching as much as he does.
Great job, Joe!
Joe Pizzo has been at it again. He wrote a guest blog post for the NEA Foundation about his work with digi-poems. Thanks for sharing your practice broadly, Joe!
Congratulations to Sheila Cooperman, who was published this week on the Writers Who Care blog. Her post, Color Outside the Lines, reflects her commitment to developing digital literacies in her classroom.
Way to go Sheila!
Part of the DLC culture is to share our practice with others. We are proud of Joe Pizzo for the work he has done surrounding digi-poems, and we salute him for this guest post on the US Department of Veterans Affairs blog.
During our summer writing workshop, Rebekah shaped a blog post she had written alongside her students into a submission for the blog Teachers, Profs, Parents: Writers Who Care. The blog has published Rebekah’s piece this week.
Take a look and congrats to Rebekah!
It’s DLC week! We will be preparing for the Institute, which will be held Wednesday at the Lincoln Center campus of Fordham University. We will also kick off the week’s blog posts with some reflections on digital literacy/ies by Veronica Sczcygiel, a doctoral student in the CLAIR program at Fordham.
Wednesday we host Jonathan Rochelle, product manager at Google and co-founder of Google docs and sheets, as well as some excellent teachers who will share their classroom practices. Our institute, Developing Digital Literacies, promises to be a fantastic event.
Thursday, DLC teachers will meet together to explore Digital Is and prepare their own classroom materials for publication. We will add some reflections to the week by our DLC teachers and other Fordham students.
If you would like to become involved in the work of the DLC, you can complete this application. We are inviting up to 10 teachers to join us for the upcoming school year.
