PreCon
Sessions

PreConference sessions at Learning2 offer participants a chance to take an in-depth look at various topics, with a focus on hands-on and active learning that is difficult to do in shorter sessions.

These sessions are designed to be facilitated in active groups. The minimum number of participants required is approximately 8 and the maximum number will vary based on the precon presenter. If your selected preconference does not have the minimum number of participants then it will be cancelled and you will have the option of selecting another session or receiving a full refund.

Emerging Digital Literacies and Young Children

Can you to find the sharrow?  We teach abc’s, but do we teach ↧, 🌐, or 🔁? Young children build with wooden blocks, but can they build with coding blocks? This session will expand our definition of emerging literacies for young children and explore different methods of (digital) literacy instruction, along with hands-on exploration.

This session will provide guidance on how to ensure young children (and parents and teachers) don’t just see screens, iPads and robotics as noisy distractions, but as innovative creation and problem solving tools that support a variety of literacies and modes of expression.
