JCS2018: From Digital Literacy to Independent Learning: challenges and opportunities for librarians and teachers

Friday 30 November 2018 

Aston University, Birmingham, UK

JCS is delighted to be holding its first ever conference on Friday 30th November 2018 at Aston University (Conference Aston) on the theme: From Digital Literacy to Independent Learning: challenges and opportunities for librarians and teachers.

Digital literacy skills are becoming increasingly essential for learning, employment and citizenship. It is often assumed that young people are already digitally literate, but research proves otherwise. Educators and librarians have a crucial role to play in guiding and supporting their students to think critically about digital technologies and the opportunities and risks they present.

For this conference, JCS brings together experts in the field of digital literacy, school and university librarians, school leaders, and providers of authoritative sources to share their knowledge and good practice in supporting the challenges and opportunities for school librarians and teachers in an increasingly complex and digitised world.
