TLL 1702 - DIGITAL LITERACIES AND LEARNING ACROSS EDUCATIONAL CONTEXTS

Credits: 3.0

This course will explore how literacy and learning are changing as people utilize digital technologies and traverse an evolving media landscape. To do so we will examine how people - particularly PreK-12 youth - are reading, writing, and making meaning with digital media and technology across educational contexts from schools to museums to library makerspaces. In this course, students will learn how to digitally compose a range of artifacts (e.g. digital stories, games, podcasts), engage in critical analysis of digital artifacts, and think about how to design digital experiences to nurture learning and literacy. Through our creation and reflection on digital artifacts we will also focus on key concepts in digital literacies like participatory cultures, multimodality, multiliteracies, algorithmic rights, and more.
