Digital Authorship

Creative Collaborations in Context

Week 6 EDC 534, Spring 2021

These two teachers were talented educators who I met online when offering a 4-week professional development program sponsored by the Council of Near East South Asia Schools, a network of independent schools. They worked at an independent school in Athens, Greece, and they were new to the concept of digital literacy. They didn’t think of themelves as digital authors — — they were teachers.

But as they began to collaborate, working together to create a unit of instruction (similar to the Design Studio process we use at the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, they accomplished magical results. They created an Anytime (asynchronous) online learning experience, using Padlet, where students entered into Odysseus’ palace to understand the historical context of the famous epic. How thrilling it was to see their pride in their creative work!

Last week, we learned of the many challenges of incorporate digital authorship into the curriculum. This week, dig deeper into the creative practices that are generated through collaboration.
