Dr. Pinkard will be presenting, “Digital Youth Network: Developing 21st Century Learners Through the Integration of Overlapping Affinity Spaces” where she will share the DYN model, provide examples of implementation in formal and informal contexts, and provide evidence of the longitudinal impact of participation in DYN on students’ development as literate citizens. A discussion will follow Dr. Pinkard’s presentation.
