Most students need help navigating today’s media-rich world. To be literate now means being able to read, write, listen, speak, view, and represent across all media—including both print and nonprint texts, such as film, TV, podcasts, websites, visual art, fashion, architecture, landscape, and music. Pam and Ryan Goble (mother and son & co-authors of Making Curriculum Pop) will use this session to show how you can use media, technology and pop culture as rich sites for studying and learning “core content.” The presentation will include a bank of “essential” tools & tips for learners that will help improve schoolwork and better equip them for the rigor of what lies ahead.
