Ours is a visual world, so how can we best equip children to navigate the post-digital age? Designed for primary educators, librarians and literacy coordinators, this workshop will demonstrate how visual literacy can be integrated into the teaching of text-based reading and writing skills. Berlin-based publisher, Kristen Harrison, will present a working model for teaching reading, writing, and Visual Literacy at primary level. Not only will participants come away with exciting innovative strategies to put to immediate practical use, they will also receive teaching kits and a gift-pack of books from Curved House Kids.

Filmed November 86, 2014 during the 47th International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA) conference at the Toledo Museum of Art. Produced by Penta Career Center.
