Innovation Powered by Technology: RIDE Conference

Julie Coiro, Yonty Friesem and Renee Hobbs are presenting along with the school leaders and faculty of the Narragansett Public Schools on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at the Rhode Island Convention Center at the RIDE Technology Conference

We will be gathering to share DigiGansettt: Building Powerful Partnerships for Preparing Pre-Service Teachers for Digital Literacy. You can see the plan for the whole conference here. 

Participants share their inspirational experiences generated through the collaborative partnership between URI and Narragansett Elementary School. University faculty, pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and administrators were all engaged in a journey toward understanding digital literacy and how to teach effectively in a digital world. 

Participants include: Gail Dandurand, Tonia Hassell, Karen Festa, Julie Coiro, Renee Hobbs, and Yonty Friesem

Learning Goals for this Session

1.     Develop an understanding of how a student-teaching practicum experience can be expanded to integrate principles and practices of digital literacy

2.     Listen and react to personal stories of how a diverse range of pre-service and in-service teacher mutually benefitted from their involvement in the URI Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, NES Book Club NES DigiPlayground and NES Catalyst Teacher meetings

3.     Reflect on strategies and practices that can be used to implement similar collaborative partnerships back at their own schools
