Learning in the Cloud: Teaching Digital Literacy to ABE/ESL Learners for Successful College and Career Transitions

Featuring S. Michele Echols

As post-secondary schools shift away from traditional education models, in favor of providing deeper learning environments, they are required to replace their outdated technology practices and implement a new infrastructure to support student learning. The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education concepts can be modified to use in the ABE/ESL classroom. For example, instructors will be able to teach learners how to distinguish reliable from unreliable online information, and they should become aware of the ways in which civic participation may differ in online and offline contexts. This webinar will employ facilitated instruction to introduce the concepts and demonstrate lesson planning ideas to utilize in the classroom and beyond.
