New Literacies, Digital Technologies and Learning Certificate

The certificate in New Literacies, Digital Technologies and Learning focuses on developing educators who are able to use a range of digital technologies as a seamless part of literacy instruction. It focuses on literacy practices that are mediated by digital technologies (i.e. blogging, gaming, social networking) or that are newly recognized as literacies (i.e. fanfiction writing, narrative video making).
These technologies - like blogs and wikis, video and audio creation, social networking applications, and user - created content management systems - require and generate new ways of reading, writing, viewing and communicating with others. The program provides educators with sound theories that help shape practice, along with practical strategies for developing effective ways of using new literacies and Web 2.0 technologies in learning contexts.
This 15-credit program:
- Will qualify individuals as experts in K-12 new literacies and digital technologies
- Offers courses in hybrid mode (a few traditional classes, with the rest online)
- Has the potential to advance standing in a current teaching position
- Is an ideal complement to degrees and certifications in Reading
- Is an excellent stepping-stone to doctoral study in the field of new literacies
