In response to requests for more customized support for educators who work in corrections settings, these meetings provide opportunities for teachers and others to share effective corrections-specific and corrections-accessible digital literacy tools, resources, and strategies.
In this meeting, we will focus on ways to effectively and realistically implement the digital literacy-related Massachusetts Indicators of Program Quality (IPQs) in correctional settings, and specifically IPQ Standard 5.3: Instruction intentionally uses a variety of technologies to develop students’ essential digital literacy skills including: finding, evaluating, consuming, creating, organizing, communicating, and sharing digital content.
If you work in a correctional facility and would like to be included on the Digital Literacy Sharing Group for Corrections mailing list and consider joining meetings, please fill out this brief form to let us know what support would be helpful to your practice.
