Digital Learning Day 2013: Social Media Workshop for Anthropologists

For Digital Learning Day this year, Campus Archaeology will be hosting a workshop to teach anthropologists digital skills they need to succeed in an increasingly tech-driven world. We will be teaching anthropologists how to network on twitter, the basics of blogging, and how to manage one’s online identity. In addition to this, we will discuss some new tech tools that will help with research and outreach!

Digital learning day  was started by the Alliance for Learning, and in partnership with the National Writing Project. “Digital Learning Day will celebrate innovative teaching practices that make learning more personalized and engaging and encourage exploration of how digital learning can provide more students with more opportunities to get the skills they need to succeed in college, career, and life.” Digital learning is any instruction that uses technology to strengthen learning. This includes using online content and courses, using technology to strengthen lessons, applying technology to create better resources, providing online access to educational materials, and many others.

Campus Archaeology has always been committed to using digital social media as a way to reach the public, and is always testing new ways to do this. Our students and interns are given opportunities to work with different technologies, and all of us at Campus Archaeology are bloggers. While it may seem counterintuitive for a discipline focused on the past, we are always on the look out for the newest technology to see how we can better educate the public and have more effective outreach.
