2022 Digital Literacy Conference

« All Events

Fri. September 16, 2022 | 8:30 am 2:00 pm

On average, young adults today spend nearly 10 hours a day consuming media, including at school and in their free time. Within that timeframe, they can be exposed to thousands of media messages – some of which require extra effort to analyze and contextualize.

Do these young adults fully understand what they are seeing on a daily basis? Can they distinguish between real or altered content? Now more than ever, digital literacy — the ability to use technology to locate, evaluate, interpret, and create information — is a critical skill that needs attention in today’s learning environments if educators want their students to thrive in the classroom and beyond.

Join teachers and other education stakeholders for a one-day virtual conference centered on this new literacy, with presenters offering their views on how to best integrate digital literacy into instruction across several subject areas. With this knowledge, educators across Illinois will be better able to guide their students toward becoming productive, ethical, and empathetic digital citizens.
