Description/Abstract

Critical computational literacy (CCL) combines the strengths of critical literacy and computational thinking. Through CCL, youth conceptualize, create, and disseminate digital projects that break silences, expose important truths, and challenge unjust systems, all the while building skills such as coding and design. Participants of this workshop will leave with a robust understanding of the potential and possibilities of urban youth of color in creating mobile and web-based interactives through engaging hands-on activities. We will practice through the creation of infographics that is pertinent to different grade levels and disciplines.

Intended audience: This workshop is most applicable to educators across all content areas, especially those in grades 7-12.

As a former secondary, public school English, Social Studies, and Media Arts teacher in East Oakland, his interests and passions remain focused on transforming the educational trajectories for urban youth of color.
