Keynote – TCCTA 2020

Title Slide from TCCTA Talk. Title reads: Empowering Students Through Creative Technologies: a digital literacy primer.

Today I delivered the Keynote at the 2020 Texas Community College Teachers Association conference, focusing on bringing digital creativity and digital literacy into the classroom. The materials for that talk (as well as my afternoon session) are below.

During my time at the conference, the most valuable element has been getting to talk to all the amazing educators at the conference–learning what they do and how they do it, and, where appropriate, helping them find ways to bring digital creativity possibilities into their pedagogy. Don’t get me wrong, the keynote was a great experience, and I am very appreciative of having the opportunity to share what I do with a room of a 1000 people or so, but spending time in conversation in the hallways and meeting with people in the exhibit hall has been inspiring. I’ve made a lot of great connections with faculty across the disciplines and I hope we get to continue our conversations after the event.

Thanks, TCCTA!
