Family Literacy on the Wild, Wild e-Frontier: Strategies for Raising Digitally Savvy Families
A California Library Literacy Services Webinar
Start Time: Pacific - 10 AM, Mountain - 11 AM, Central - 12 PM, Eastern - 1 PM
Kim Noriega, Family Literacy Coordinator, READ/San Diego - San Diego Public Library
Amy Prevedel, Independent Literacy Contractor
Brian Castagne, Literacy and Learning Specialist, The Bridge at Main/Project Read, San Francisco Public Library
Kim Noriega and Brian Castagne will join Amy Prevedel to explore research, tools and strategies you can use to support adult learners as they navigate the digital world with their families. Both Kim and Brian have developed media education programming that has served adult learners well in facing what is truly the wild frontier of raising a family in a digital world. You can borrow from their work at the San Diego and San Francisco public libraries, respectively, to help you meet the digitally-related learning goals of families in your own program.
In the webinar, the presenters will respond to questions about family literacy and digital media raised via a CLLS listserv survey in February. Specifically, it will explore:
- What research says about the impact that media use - and overuse - has on family members of different ages - and what we can do about that when it comes to designing family literacy programming
- Learning resources for navigating digital life designed specifically for families - and for educators like ourselves who support their learning
- High-quality digital materials and resources that families can use to learn - and have fun - together
Innovation is everywhere! The presenters will rely on your participation to share, explore, expand upon and generate ideas on digital use and literacy in our California libraries and communities. As always, please feel free to use the publicity, materials and activities presented, modifying them to best suit the families you serve.
This webinar will be of interest to: the California Library Literacy community, especially literacy program staff people who will offer literacy programming with new CLLS funds.
