Digital Collaboration to Support Literacy Classrooms

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 3:00 pm CDT

One of the most powerful ways students learn is through social and dialogic experiences. From students working in pairs, small groups, or whole-class discussions, constructing knowledge happens best when students work together. Traditionally, these collaborative interactions only took place in the classroom face to face; today we live in an era where teachers and students interact in both an analog and digital space.

In this edWebinar, Steven W. Anderson, Digital Learning and Relationship Evangelist, and Shaelynn Farnsworth, Education Services Consultant for AEA 267 in Iowa, will examine what contemporary collaboration means and how best to implement collaborative literacy learning in both the traditional classroom as well as the blended one. They will discuss Collaboration and its relationship to the 4 Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Creation, and Critical Thinking. Their presentation will provide examples of both analog and digital collaboration tools for high-functioning literacy classrooms.

There will be time to ask Steven and Shaelynn your questions after their presentation. This edWebinar is designed for K-12 educators, leaders, and librarians who have a literacy focus, however, all education professionals are invited to attend this live, interactive event. Join us to learn more about digital collaboration to support literacy classrooms!

Presented by Steven W. Anderson, Digital Learning and Relationship Evangelist; and Shaelynn Farnsworth, Education Services Consultant for AEA 267 in Iowa.
