Description:

The Brookfield Institute for Innovation+Entrepreneurship will be providing insight on year 1 of their two year pilot, the Digital Literacy+Coding Pilot. Working with community partners with established infrastructure i.e catchment areas, informal learning spaces and youth audiences, we developed a pilot that would be provide resources and iterative curriculum to support youth who are traditionally underrepresented in STEM and adjacent careers.

We would like to provide insight on the model, current results and access to our open source curriculum to help bring this learning to communities province-wide.

Attendees will leave the session with a concrete understanding of digital literacy and how libraries play an integral role in supporting this type of learning in their communities.
