Beyond the Apps Conference

AUC garden

Last week's Beyond the App conference, hosted by AUC and SUNY Cortland’s Literacy Department, connected literacy leaders around the globe with Egyptian and American teachers as well as teachers from many other countries. Teachers shared their knowledge building on the best literacy practices for middle grades (Primary 4, 5, 6 and Preparatory 1, 2, 3). 

As a result of the COVID pandemic, teachers have been required to move much more quickly than they had planned to enact effective literacy learning in digital environments. The fully digital conference aimed to expand the digital tools teachers might use to make the most effective use of online literacy instruction and go additional steps Beyond the App. Read more about the conference.
