DLC Members Present At NJECC 18

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!

DLC Week is Here!

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.
