Tracks

Choose One of Two Tracks

Networks

Digital Literacies

Participants choose between one of two tracks, Digital Literacies or Networks, and work collaboratively in small workshop-style classes. There will also be large group activities, and moments of intersection between the tracks. Each day will end before dinner. The learning community we create together will be welcoming to a wide range of skill levels and interests.

Update (June 13th, 2016): DIGITAL LITERACIES IS NOW FULL!

Networks (Jesse and Dave): This track will focus on the nature of digital networks and network-building, from blogs and social media to open courses and collaboration. It will include discussions of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), rhizomatic learning, how influence and reputation circulate in professional learning networks, the social contracts of closed and networked spaces, and the intersections between networks and face-to-face learning environments. We’ll especially focus on Twitter as an experimental space for thinking about how networks are both responding to and creating the Internet as a learning environment. Individual sessions and workshops will introduce tools and hybrid approaches that can help build learning communities that extend beyond the bounds of the classroom. Participants will also explore the challenges, risks, and benefits of having learners collaborating openly on the web. Read More

Digital Literacies (Sean and Bonnie): We cannot develop students’ digital literacies without developing those of educators, as models and mentors. Digital skills focus on what and how, while digital literacies consider why, when, who, and for whom, as well. This track focuses on the development of participatory, networked literacies that enable collaboration, contribution, and critical sense-making within information abundance. It fosters a critical orientation toward tools, portfolios, and digital presence within networks. Participants will discuss and experiment with various technological tools from the chalkboard to moveable chairs, computers, mobile devices, social media platforms, and learning management systems. Individual sessions and workshops will focus on teaching philosophies, discernment practices for using digital tools in courses, emergent learning, digital composition, and discussions of the impact of the digital on traditional and critical pedagogies.
