Since January 2019, educators across the state of Maine have been participating in a blended learning experience designed to support schools as they integrate Digital Citizenship concepts into various student learning opportunities. In particular, participants learned how the Health Education and Physical Education Standards intersected with the Common Sense Media Framework, as well as opportunities to explore these concepts within other content areas.
The #DigCit4ME Challenge featured in-person workshops (agenda and resources) and an online game designed collaboratively between the Maine Department of Education and Alludo Learning.
Several educators asked questions about the process of designing a blended learning opportunity, so the Department will co-host a webinar where the team from Alludo Learning will discuss the pedagogy behind their design (including gamified learning, evidence-based learning, choice-based learning, and digital badging) and the Department will talk more about our process of designing this blended learning opportunity. Educators will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
- Date: Thursday, May 9th from 3-4pm
- Registration and Connection Information
- Open to all educators
- Participants may earn up to one contact hour.
