Teaching and Learning Center Seminar on Digital Literacy

March 29, 1-2:30 pm

The Teaching & Learning Center will host a seminar on digital literacy with Sam Wineburg, the Margaret Jacks Professor of Education at Stanford. He will address a big question of our times, “What is it about the Internet that makes smart people spin around in circles?” The event is open to the public.

Register for the seminar.

Seminar Description

The Internet plays by different rules from the print culture that has shaped our conceptions of reading. Drawing on a national survey with 3,447 high school “digital natives,” along with ethnographic work with Stanford undergraduates, Ph.D. academics, and professional fact-checkers, Wineburg explores what it is about the Internet that has smart people turning around in circles and how we—along with our students—can do better. 

Wineburg’s work on digital literacy has been featured in TIME Magazine, The New York Times, NPR, the BBC, and translated into dozens of languages.
