Education in the Digital Age: A Tour of Frontline's Digital Nation
Tuesday, December 8, 8:00pm EST.
PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 are hosting a free webinar with Producer/Director Rachel Dretzin from FRONTLINE's "Digital Nation" project. Rachel will share her insights and findings from the year-long, multi-platform project exploring the impact of the Web and digital media on life in the 21st century.
The Digital Nation Web site will include online video reports on how the Internet and technology are changing cultures, reshaping workplaces and creating new approaches to the way we solve problems. Issues to be examined include the Web’s impact on education, how social media has changed the way individuals interact, and Internet safety and privacy. Central to the site will be a mosaic of user-generated content designed to let visitors participate in the documentary process. The site also will feature a producers’ blog, embeddable video and other sharable content, and a schedule of live online events with expert guests.
