New Literacies Collaborative

Inquire. Collaborate. Create.

The New Literacies Collaborative conducts research, creates professional learning experiences, and designs learner-centered instructional resources grounded in the theoretical and practical intersections of literacy, digital technologies, and global competencies. Through an equity lens, we collaborate with diverse educators and students to develop, evaluate and scale new literacies’ innovations throughout North Carolina and around the world.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING: Cross-Cultural Student Virtual Exchange

Over the past five years, I have watched my teacher team grow and, in turn, watched them grow our students as a result of our ongoing partnership and fellowship with the New Literacies Collaborative.
