Event: Dr. Skúlína Hlíf Kjartansdóttir speaks on Maker Literacies

Please join us for a talk by Dr. Skúlína Hlíf Kjartansdóttir as she discusses her work on Maker Literacies. The talk will present some preliminary results of observations and research in Europe, particularly in Scandinavia and Iceland. How are global ideas and technical know-how being transferred globally and what characterizes  the digital literacies and pedagogies that are being developed locally? Are these new trends merging easily with the existing culture and school curriculum structures? These and other related issues are up for discussion.

April 30 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Centre for Research in Multiliteracies
Brock Research and Innovation Centre
130 Lockhart Drive
