Changing the World of Teaching and Learning
The 2013 Massachusetts New Literacies Institute
grew out of a collaboration between the
Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE)
Institute for Research and Innovative Education (IRIE)
Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Collaborative (LPVEC)
. Though grant funding is no longer available, ESE continues to support new literacies and the important work of the Institute as it is carried on by the LPVEC. This Institute will focus on helping Massachusetts educators prepare students for the online literacy skills required in the 21st century. The Institute will take place on August 5-9, 2013 at the
Microsoft Research Center
1 Memorial Drive
in Cambridge, MA.
The Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICTs) have redefined learning and literacy in the 21st century. How should schools and teachers respond? The Massachusetts New Literacies Institute will prepare educators for teaching in powerful ways with these new digital tools. Institute activities will include inquiry projects, workshops, panel discussions, design studios, featured speakers and just-in-time learning. Working collaboratively to develop creative and innovative instructional solutions for their classrooms, participants will spend an intensely rewarding week with other educators just as passionate about transforming teaching and learning for the 21st century.
