Cultivating innovative and thoughtful learners requires the development of the three new 21st century literacies: digital, media, and global. Dr. Jacobs will dive into exciting design options to integrate active literacy into curriculum planning, assessment design and teaching approaches for primary, secondary, and tertiary learners. She will engage us in examining these questions: How can we engage our students developmentally into employing digital learning? How do we help our students critique and create quality media? How can we cultivate globally connected learners by opening the portals to our classroom? A critical focus will be on methods for replacing dated content with contemporary issues, problems, and topics at ALL levels of instruction.
