Early Literacy Development in the Digital Age

Dr. Jackie Marsh, prófessor viš Hįskólann ķ Sheffield

In this talk, I will share the outcomes of the project ‘Digital Futures in Teacher Education’, in which schools undertook a range of projects that aimed to develop children’s digital literacy skills. The talk will consider the ways in which literacy is changing in the digital age, and identifies how teachers can develop children’s literacy and multimodal communication skills using technology.

Jackie Marsh is Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield, UK. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Jackie has led numerous research projects engaging children, teachers, parents and children’s media industry partners in research on young children’s play and digital literacy practices in homes and schools (e.g. the ESRC-funded project ‘Technology and Play’). Jackie is Chair of COST Action IS1410, DigiLitEY, a European network of 35 countries focusing on research in this area (2015-2019).
