There will also be large group activities, and moments of intersection between the tracks. Each day will end before dinner. The learning community we create together will be welcoming to a wide range of skill levels and interests. Digital Literacies (Sean and Bonnie): We cannot develop students’ digital literacies without developing those of educators, as models and mentors.

Networks (Jesse and Dave): This track will focus on the nature of digital networks and network-building, from blogs and social media to open courses and collaboration.
