As we approach teacher appreciation week, we wanted to highlight one of our DLC members who was recently recognized by WDHA 105.5 as a teacher who rocks! Congratulations, Joe Pizzo!
You can read about Joe, and all of the other rocking NJ teachers, here.
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!
