Digital literacy is an important objective of teaching and learning. While most students engage widely with digital writing on the Internet through social media, wikis and news feeds, more attention needs to be given to how to write and read creatively and responsibly in public-facing digital spaces.
Using Scalar permits authors to incorporate their writing with digital media they can assemble from multiple sources, but with only a minimal level of technical expertise.
Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop and to take a minute to set up an account on Scalar before the session. Set up an account at scalar.usc.edu/.
