Fostering Student Engagement through Digital Literacy: from ELN. Digital literacy is speaking, listening, writing and reading through the use of technology such as a cell phone, ipad, computer, laptop, video camera, Playstation, Wii and so forth. Outside of school children and adolescents today are using technology regularly. The following webinar highlights some of the connections between out-of-school literacy learning and within school learning to promote engagement.

Watch Webinars Anywhere! The Ed Leaders Network has partnered
with a company called Brainshark to bring you an enhanced video player
that allows for playback on the iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices.
This upgrade has also made possible the ability to download and print a
"certificate of completion" for each webinar you view. You will also
notice a more easily accessible "attachments" button for downloading the
presentation handout, and a larger "full screen" viewing experience.

ELN webinars not only allow you to pass on what you have learned, but
you are also encouraged to watch these high quality webinars with
members of your staff during "lunch and learn" sessions, faculty
meetings and in-service days. The State Mandated Trainings are a perfect
opportunity to gather your staff together and promote learning on these
important topics for educators. Each training also includes an attached
"sign in sheet" to be completed and kept as verification that your
school is compliant with the required trainings in your state.
