Computational Literacies: Algorithms in Media and Society

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Much of the new media your students use every day are computational - social media, photo and video sharing platforms, video games - therefore they are powered by data and algorithms. When students understand the computational design of the media they use, they can be more empowered and critically aware users of technology. Participants will engage in activities and discussion to explore building computational and digital literacies to help our students become more savvy participants in media and society.
