We held out as long as we could to decide on whether it would be possible to run this year’s Canadian Institute for Digital Literacies Learning, but in May of 2020, and in collaboration with our incredibly generous institutional partner, the Canada Science and Technology Museum, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our program.
This is certainly not the end of this institute — but it does mean that we need to rethink what it might become in the years ahead.
To all of our participants past and future, we thank you for all of the ways that you have contributed to the development of new networks, new thinking, new research. There is so much work to do. Together, we can build schools where this and future generations of Canadian students can come to know themselves as powerful digital meaning makers. Until we meet again, stay healthy and take care of one another.
