ETMS Digital Library Skills Showcase + Summer 2021 Maker Camp Kick-off
Let’s Build a Digital Skills Library! Project Showcase + Summer “Maker Camp” Kickoff
Over the past year, we have seen a universal need for more resources to support digital skill development, along with tools and strategies to help educators effectively integrate technology into instruction. At the same time, we have seen a surge of innovative ideas from adult educators working to address these needs. Through our CrowdED Learning initiative, the EdTech Center @ World Education recently hosted an EdTech Maker Space crowdsourcing event aimed at leveraging educators’ collective expertise to pull together these resources and ideas. The goal? To begin the process of building an open Digital Skills Library that can help diverse sets of learners develop the digital skills they need to succeed and thrive. Join us to see the results of this project, in which 50+ educators from around the country (and beyond) came together to organize high quality learning resources around the Seattle Digital Equity Initiative Digital Skills Framework. Not only will you see a showcase of participants’ favorite resources and ideas for integrating them, you will also learn about our upcoming Summer “Maker Camp” — a series of 90-minute events throughout the summer where you’ll have opportunities to share, brainstorm, and create with other educators to expand the library as we work together to build an open content sharing ecosystem.
