About this event

The DETECT project team invites you to a free event on the topic of critical digital literacies relevant for teachers and students.

The event will take place on 19th May 2022 at 13.30-17.30 at the premises of one of our partner schools, Old Ford Primary Academy, in London (Wright's Rd, E3 5LD).

During the course of this event participants will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of the various dimensions of critical digital literacies relevant for their practice and also for their students. Participants will hear from the school teachers involved in the project who will share some of the resources around different dimensions of critical digital literacies they co-created. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore professional development resources which include a freely available self-paced online course and an online toolkit. A taster session will be organised for both so that participants can familiarise themselves with the tools which they can then explore in more depth at their own time and pace after the event.

Who should attend?

School teachers, school leaders, teacher educators, lecturers, advisory teachers/educators.

Attendance and registration:

Attendance at this event is free. A small travel bursary of up to £80 is available for those that need it.
