Libraries and Learning and Literacy! Oh My!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Understanding digital literacy is about understanding our relationship to how technology is at once shaped by society and is also influenced by society. Centers of education, including libraries, museums, science centers, and others need to go beyond simply presenting facts and figures. The future of these institutions requires that we broaden the mandate to create a culture of enablement as compared to being passive observers. This presentation will help establish some of the challenges facing the future of education in a culture that is quickly realizing digital literacy as a necessary core skill.
