“Pop Literacy”| SLJ ISTE Webcast Series

A three-part School Library Journal webcast series, developed in partnership with the International Society for Technology in Education, concludes with “Pop Literacy” on Tuesday, December 6 at 3 p.m. ET.


The series, sponsored by littleBits, explores the education technology topics educators are talking about this school year, from virtual reality and STEAM to popular culture and digital literacy. Led by top practitioners in each field, these one-hour free programs will provide practical takeaways, ready to be implemented in classrooms and libraries.

Pop Literacy

The Walking Dead, hip-hop, Snapchat: They’re all resources for learning. We’ll explore new literacies in practice to glean how student-led exploration using meaningful topics and engaging tools can make learning pop. SLJ’s “NeverEnding Search” blogger, Joyce Valenza, will moderate.


Frank W. Baker: founder, The Media Literacy Clearinghouse

Renee Hobbs: director, Media Education Lab, University of Rhode Island

James Miles: Fresh Ed, Urban Arts Partnership; adjunct professor, New York University

Registered participants get access to the entire webcast archives, which can be viewed at any time. Details on SLJ’s webcasts can be found on and via Twitter: @sljournal. The event hashtag is #SLJISTE.
