Influencers

By Thomas DeVere Wolsey

This month, Literacy Beat begins a series of posts to introduce to our readers some of the influencers and thought-leaders who have changed the way we think about intersections of literacy and technology.  Each month, Literacy Beat interviews a person who inspires teachers, researchers, makers, students, and parents to do more and be more.  Each influencer will share some of their thinking about trends they see, their own educational journeys, or tips and tools they find particularly helpful.  We hope you enjoy their stories as they share them each month.

This page will serve an index; you can always return here to find the influencers who have contributed their thoughts. Just bookmark this page at https://literacybeat.com/2016/03/20/meet-the-influencers/ or https://literacybeat.com/category/influencers/ to call up all the posts as a group.

The influencer banner, above, is adapted from an image titled, “Globe, Lights, Blog” by Jisc (CC BY 3.0).
