Upcoming #Literacies Chats!


What’s even better than free stuff?! Awesome professional conversations on Twitter!

And when do amazing #literacies chats happen?

The second Tuesday of every month at 5pm PT/ 8pm ET. 

Here are the topics of our upcoming chats:

2/13: #literacies chat on #digitalgeographies with @nathancphillips (facilitated by @urocprof)

Join Nathan Phillips (@nathancphillips) and Master’s students at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Education (@UIC_CollegeofEd) studying digital literacies  on tomorrow’s #literacies chat: February 13, 7:00pm CST. We’ll discuss #digitalgeographies as introduced in Chapter 12 from the Handbook of Writing, Literacies, and Education in Digital Cultures. In this chapter by Ty Hollett (@tyhollett), Nathan Phillips, and Kevin Leander (@kevtweet), we theorize and explore the production of digital geographies as essential everyday literacies with import for learning. We conceptualize digital geographies as the virtual intertwining with the physical as people interpret the world and write in the world while they move through everyday life. Join us to discuss implications of digital geographies for educators, designers, and researchers in investigating and designing everyday teaching and learning.

3/13: #literacies chat on “Experiencing Electracy: Digital Writing and the Emerging Communicative Landscapes of Youth Composing Selves” with @anna_phd and @wargojon (facilitated by @profhsieh)

4/10: #literacies chat — Making the Most of your AERA Experience (with a focus on #literacies, of course 😉 ) — stay tuned for the exciting facilitator!

5/8: #literacies chat examining @lizlosh‘s chapter: “Beyond the Techno-Missionary Narrative: Digital Literacy and Necropolitics” (facilitated by @mtpoc)

Mark your calendars! We’re looking forward to seeing you online at these Twitter chats and in person at AERA’s Annual Meeting April 13-17 in New York City! Let’s get pumped, Everyone!
