Introduction to Digital LiteracyNell EckersleyLiteracy Assistance Center
Series: Digital Literacy for ESOL InstructionWhat are the most important technology skills adult ESOL students (and teachers) need to develop in preparation for family, career, and post-secondary success? What are some ways the practice of these skills can be integrated into existing instruction? This four-part series on Digital Literacy for ESOL Instruction will explore these questions and some promising answers. Participants will spend time learning about tools and methods they can use with their students, develop a plan on how to integrate what they have learned, and then take time to try out their plans and receive individualized coaching before a final face-to-face workshop in which participants will report back on their experiences and learn from each others challenges and success.The four parts to this series include:Part 1: Introduction to Digital Literacy 2.10.17 http://bit.ly/DigLitESOL21017 Part 2: Integrating Computer Based Testing Skills in Adult Education 2.23.17Part 3: Coaching and Support 2.24.17- 3.30.17Part 4: Knowledge Share Session 3.31.17
