DitLit: Time to Re-Imagine the Place of Technology in the Curriculum at UMW

Written on May 7, 2010 by Reverend | Posted in Program Item

The essentializing idea that our incoming students are “digital natives” is not only false, but downright dangerous for both faculty and students alike. It is high time UMW, as an institution, starts to think about how to integrate the questions of digital literacy, digital identity, and digital creation into the curriculum campus-wide. This presentation will frame a few examples, and propose a few possible campus initiatives that may bring the campus into a deeper conversation around the question of digital fluency for teaching, learning, and research.

    Wow! So incoming students are not “digital natives”? Maybe the problem lies in placing a name on students who have grown up with technology as an extension of their bodies. This will be an interesting presentation. I wish I could attend physically. Are you offering the presentation virtually?

    Thank you
