E204: Literacies for Life: Teaching Literacies Across Formats and Platforms

2:30 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Karyn Silverman, Librarian & Educational Technology Department Chair, LREI (Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School)
Joy Piedmont, High School Technology Integrator, LREI - Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School

Online and offline life cannot really be distinguished anymore, as we and our students move between the two con- stantly. Successfully navigating the constant streams of information and data for understanding and communication is as critical as learning to read. At their school, Silverman and Piedmont co-teach a multisession high school foundations course that examines privacy, digital identity, search, intellectual rights and responsibilities, and media and visual literacy in the context of finding and communicating information. The pair share their curriculum and the changes they have seen in the upper grades as they have refined the course. Each year, they redesign in response to the changing world and their evolving understanding of these literacies. Call it library or technology, research or design, this is a curriculum that addresses the genuine needs of today’s students.
