April showers of presentations: OLC Innovate and AERA

When it rains (presentations), it pours (presentations)! This month, I had the pleasure and privilege of participating in conference sessions at OLC Innovate in Denver, and at the American Educational Research Association conference in Toronto.

NOW at OLC Innovate

At the OLC Innovate conference, Amy Collier and I presented Combating Information Pollution Through the Newspapers on Wikipedia Project. We framed the Conversation, Not Presentation session with the question, How can higher ed take action to clean up our (digital) information environment, with students in the lead? We introduced the Newspapers on Wikipedia project as one strategy for engaging students in critical digital literacies explorations that have a positive impact on the digital environment. Check out our slides for more info, including details on how to get started editing Wikipedia.

Connected Learning in Teacher Ed at AERA

Sadly, I wasn’t able to make it to AERA in person, but the Connected Learning in Teacher Ed Network sponsored a structured poster session that included 2 projects I’ve been working on: the CLinTE lit review emerging findings, and wmMOOC project findings. Photos of the posters in action below!
