By Luke Hokama

We are writing more now than ever before. Powered by the digital, our writing involves the creation of a myriad of texts, used for a variety purposes. The same holds true for our students. How can we help our young people engage in practices that encourage them as they create digital texts to define purpose and audience, make connections between digital texts and people, collaborate with others, employ alternative modes of communication and gain new perspectives, and construct identities? And how can we frame this work through a Connected Learning lens, particularly with a civic engagement mindset? Join Richard Beach, author of Understanding and Creating Digital Texts, as he explores these questions with scholars and K12 educators.

Guests for this webinar will include:

  • Richard Beach, Professor Emeritus of English education, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
  • Antero Garcia, Assistant Professor, Colorado State University
  • Nicole Mirra, Postdoctoral Scholar, UCLA Graduate School of Education
  • Lara Trale, English/Journalism teacher, Oakland High School
