Recent Digital Is highlights
This past week, Digital Is was featured in the post Share, Grow, Do: The Potential of Digital Age Learning posted by Barry Joseph of Global Kids, http://www.globalkids.org/, in the MacArthur DML Central weblog, http://dmlcentral.net/blog/barry-joseph/share-grow-do-potential-digital-age-learning.
Digital Is was also featured on Future of Education on June 9th by Troy Hicks, co-author of Because Digital Writing Matters and The Digital Writing Workshop. An archive of
the discussion is available here: http://www.stevehargadon.com/2011/06/thursday-june-9th-live-with-troy-hicks.html.
Coming up, Digital Is will be shared at ISTE 2011: Unlocking the Potential in Philadelphia, June 26-29th. Several teachers who have published resources will be sharing their
work during ISTE Unplugged sessions too, http://www.isteunplugged.com/, so if you are there, come by and check them out.
Don’t forget to check out the latest resources at http://digitalis.nwp.org/community/resource. They include a range of topics and inquiries from Fair Use, to the motion of language, to resources that push on thinking about authority and agency. Teachers associated with the Central Texas Writing Project recently participated in a study group around Digital Literacies work too, so keep an eye out for those to be public soon.
Finally, several resource-rich new Collections have been added http://digitalis.nwp.org/collections, and several great Discussions started http://digitalis.nwp.org/community/discussion, so jump in and participate.
