Watch My Digital Literacy & Project Connect Webinar Online

You can now watch the recording of my webinar Digital Literacy: Project Connect's Microcredential Course, which was sponsored by Follett on April 18.
In this webinar, we explored the definitions and importance of digital literacy and citizenship.  I also told my story of integrating digital literacy and citizenship into the library and school by creating a supportive and engaging curriculum, program and community.

I focused on various programs and resources that support digital literacy and citizenship.
One that I am very passionate about and that is perfect for learning the skills yourself is Project Connect. Follett created Project Connect to advocate and support librarians as leaders in Future Ready Librarianship skills, including digital literacy.  

They have also developed an online microcredential course to help librarians and others develop a vision and plan to promote digital learning within their library.  I recently took this course and loved sharing specifics during the webinar.

I know you will enjoy learning how you can sign up and get involved in Project Connect too.  You can do that here.

It is important for all of us to understand how to best empower our students as they become responsible digital citizens and critical consumers of information.  Please watch the webinar to find out more!  
You will find the recording, slides and certificate of participation here on the Follett Community site.
