Webinar on Networking and Negotiation as Skills in a Global Classroom


3.15.10 | Project New Media Literacies presents the second installment of its professional development series for educators, “Networking and Negotiation as Skills in a Global Classroom,” on Thursday, March 18 at 7 p.m. (EST).  To join the webinar, visit the Elluminate Meeting Room.

Behind the Research

The monthly webinar series for K-12 educators aims to translate the new skills outlined in Henry Jenkins’ whitepaper (”Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century”) into concrete learning experiences for the classroom.

Each session features guest speakers, demos of interactive tools and resources for educators and discussion about how to apply these tools in the classroom.

Thursday’s session will feature MIT Comparative Media Studies research assistant Hillary Kolos, who will discuss her experience using new media literacy skills in public school classrooms, as well as educator reflections from NML’s early adopter network in New Hampshire.

If you’ve never attended a webinar via Elluminate, an orientation of the web conferencing tool is available here.
