 Go for the Digital Literacy Trifecta


​With TCC’s current Quality Enhancement Plan focusing on Technology and Digital Literacy, we explored ways to integrate and assess digital literacy elements.

 Technology in the Learning Community


​While some instructors are resistant to emerging technology, many students are already paper-free and want to bring their iPad to class to take notes. This presentation, featuring an outside-the-box approach, seeks to establish dialogue within the learning community. You will hear from instructors, students, IT executives/professionals, and one “recently-elected” politician on some of the talking points of technology used in learning communities. Bring your cellphone to this presentation and don’t be afraid to have your device “on!”

 How It Stacks Up


​According to the TCC Fact Book, the most recent five-year trends show a greater percent increase in certificates earned versus degrees earned. The role of certificates as the gateway to other credentials, including degrees and/ or job promotions, will be discussed. Certificates in healthcare, Florida Public Safety, and business programs are highlighted.

 Computational Thinking...


​The term, “computational thinking,” was coined by Jeanette Wing who argued for adding this new competency to every child’s analytical ability as a vital ingredient of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning. With computational thinking being viewed as at the core of all STEM disciplines (Henderson,Cortina, Hazzan, & Wing, 2007) it appears that computing in K–12 is an idea whose time has come. We will define computational thinking and provide illustrations of its use in various settings while also implementing its use in the Quality Enhancement Plan at TCC.
