Learn More About Teaching Digital Literacy In The Follett Webinar On April 18

On April 18, I will be presenting a Follett webinar Digital Literacy: Project Connect's Microcredential Course.  

As the webinar page in the Follett Community states,

Don't miss my April 18 webinar as we explore the importance of teaching digital literacy, the effects of not addressing digital literacy in your school and how you can address this issue.  In today's climate of what's real and what is "fake" news, it's more important than ever to understand how you can best empower every student-even the very young-to become responsible digital citizens and critical consumers of information.  
We hope you can join us for this free webinar to learn more about digital literacy and Follett's Project Connect Digital Citizenship course too.

Register at this link.   The webinar will be recorded.  If you cannot attend the live webinar, please register anyway to receive a link to the recording.

Look How We Celebrated WRAD17 Around The World!

Over the last week, I have loved watching all of the World Read Aloud Day celebrations, projects and connections being made around the globe.  

By following #WRAD17 on Twitter and Instagram, I was able to see all of the author, illustrator and publisher connections taking place; classrooms and libraries connecting with each other to celebrate reading, creating and learning together; and lots of amazing projects happening full of creativity and fun.  
I had such a wonderful WRAD by sharing the process of writing my new Library Skills series with Cantata Learning.  

You can read more about this connection here
Also, you can search #wrad17 to look back at all of the sharing happening last week....and continue to be shared.
And to continue the connections started for WRAD17, Andy Plemmons and I will keep up the World Read Aloud Day 2017 Google Doc, which is now 89 pages long of people connecting all over the world.

Happy WRAD Everyone....I can't wait to celebrate with all of you next year too!
