New Literacies Collaborative

Inquire. Collaborate. Create.

The New Literacies Collaborative (NLC) is a multidisciplinary team of researchers and educators who promote research, professional development and global connections around new literacies. This field emerges from the theoretical and practical intersection of literacy, evolving technologies and media. NLC scholars develop innovative solutions to current educational problems, responding to the ways new technologies are changing learning environments. Our work includes designing and delivering professional development for teachers about new literacies, creating game-based learning environments, developing new approaches to teaching and learning in digital history, and investigating new approaches to teaching struggling readers across cultural contexts.
