During the URI Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, we will:

  • Discuss and reflect on how literacy is changing as a result of media and technology and the implications of this cultural and technological shift for teaching and learning at all levels
  • Discuss and reflect on the purpose and application of various digital tools and technologies that might be used to enhance teaching, learning, and creative response in K-12, higher education, afterschool and library settings
  • Apply knowledge and skills in using digital texts, tools and technologies as demonstrated through hands-on practical creative activity
  • Engage in phases of project-based inquiry and curriculum design to explore how to integrate digital literacy into existing academic programs in both formal and informal learning environments.

In 2013, 63 participants attended the program and 70% rated it the BEST professional development program they have ever experienced in their entire career!

Overview. This six-day institute focuses on how literacy is changing as a result of emerging media and technologies. We’ll consider the implications of this cultural and technological shift for teaching and learning at all levels. Join us in exploring innovative approaches now being used by K-12 educators, librarians, and college and university faculty, both in and out of the classroom.
