Literacy 2.0: Shifting into the
Our workshop on Friday, March 2nd, Literacy 2.0: Shifting into the 21st Century Mindset was outstanding! Stevi Quate & Joe Dillon did a masterful job of creating an interactive learning environment connecting content, social media, and computer tools.
Stevi & Joe explained the difference between "Literacy 1.0" & "Literacy 2.0". Literacy 1.0 is simply the process of finding information in traditional ways. Literacy 2.0 is a much more interactive process of finding and producing information using technology as a major tool for "opening the walls of the world"!
Throughout the day participants worked with 3 different "Conversation Partners": Google Partners, Twitter Partners, and Facebook Partners. Stevi & Joe created a wiki, which contained all sorts of information, websites, and tools. The wiki was our "21st Century handout"! Not only was the workshop informative, but it was fun, engaging, and made participants anxious to explore a variety of computer tools on their own! In other words the learning did not end at 3:00 ... the excitement to continue the work traveled with participants as they left the building.
Some participant comments include the following:
A huge thank you to Stevi & Joe!
