With the influx of mobile devices, multimedia websites, e-books, interactive graphics, and social media, there’s no question that literacy is changing. But are we adjusting our pedagogy to adopt and adapt literacy instruction to meet the needs of today’s learner?

This preconference workshop will explore the latest research and trends in digital literacy and investigate new modalities that require students to read beyond the text to comprehend new information. Holding on to what we know about best practice instruction, we’ll rethink reading with images, video, sketchnotes, graphics, AR and VR. Together, we’ll collect exemplars and craft lessons that explicitly teach students to analyze features they may encounter as they read the world. Attendees will leave with a set of digital artifacts to share back at school with colleagues that craft a vision for literacy today.
