What a great way to be a leader in digital literacy in your school or community!

The Summer Institute in Digital Literacy is the world's longest-running professional development program in digital literacy. The program is a week-long interdisciplinary gathering that includes K-12 educators and school leaders; higher education faculty and researchers; school, public and academic librarians; media literacy educators working in non-school contexts; and journalists and creative media professionals.


During this intensive 42-hour program, you will get inspired by experts in literacy, learning, media and technology and have frequent opportunities to advance your digital literacy competencies through hands-on, minds-on learning experiences.

At the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy, everyone learns from everyone! All week long, you will: 

  • Participate in meaningful conversations and develop collaborative relationships.

  • Create a meaningful digital resource that you can implement or use in your own work context.

  • Share ideas for how to integrate digital inquiry and creative production into K-12 classrooms, libraries, and/or maker spaces through intentional planning, experiential learning, collaboration, and innovative assessments of student learning.

  • Design and reflect upon culturally responsive teaching practices that empower learners as you examine the intersection between digital and media literacy, social justice and democracy.  

  • Discuss how to restore critical attention to the strategic power of emotional response to digital texts, tools, technologies and help people how to distinguish between education & indoctrination  

  • Develop competencies as a media literacy entrepreneur or discover or enlarge your identity as a leader in digital literacy.

  • Learn about research that supports your strategic planning process and meet with others facing similar challenges to brainstorm creative approaches to find funding for digital and media literacy initiatives. 

Inspiring keynotes, hands-on creative & collaborative workshops, plus time for rich community conversations
