Closing the Gap
in Digital Literacy with Arts Integration
for Educators & Parents of Students in Grades Pre-K-8
May 4, 2019 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
The Cameron Art Museum & The Southeast Center for Arts Integration
This FREE professional development session incorporates elements of both arts-integrated and hands-on learning experiences with Digital Literacy, English Language Arts, and Science. You will see how to use art, starting with exhibits in the galleries as springboards, to dive into the connections between the Arts, Digital Literacy, and English. This day-long workshop is especially for educators and parents in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Onslow, Pender, and Sampson counties. We will provide time and support for arts-integrated lesson planning.
This program is funded by the Joseph and Elsa Flowers Davies Fund.
“The professional development was hands-on and allowed each of us to personalize the information according to the standards that we are responsible for teaching….As a district leader, I believe it is important for us to think about how we might be able to bring visual literacy to multiple areas of our curriculum. Your experiences helped me to look at visual art in new and personal ways. Thank you for sharing your passions and helping me to ignite my own!”
Ebony Massey, K-5 ELA Curriculum Specialist, Cumberland County Schools
