Conceptualizing, Measuring, and Modeling Digital Literacy

Friday, October 31, 2014  |  3:00 PM – 4:00 PM  |  BB&T Room 109

​Dr. Jeffrey A. Greene will discuss how todays’ students both benefit from, and are uniquely challenged by, the increasing ease of access to an ever-increasing corpus of information available online. Tools like the Internet are powerful affordances, and also sometimes dangerous environments. In this presentation, he will argue that digital literacy in the modern world requires that students be able to effectively self-regulate their learning, and be critical consumers of the information they encounter. Then he will show what the research literature has learned about measuring and modeling these phenomena, and where he believe the future challenges lie.
