Princeton Day School is pleased to welcome Nate Green, a nationally-recognized expert on digital literacy, to campus on Friday, February 9. He will meet with parents at a Parents Association coffee in the morning, and then present to our Middle and Upper School students in assemblies during the day. In addition, he will meet one-on-one with students and faculty at the end of the day. Mr. Green will be speaking on the importance of creating a positive digital footprint, consuming edifying information on the web, and building a digital portfolio.
Nate Green currently serves as the Technology Integration & Information Specialist at Flint Hill School where he teaches an elective called, "Disruptive Innovation through Social Media," which helps students become media literate digital citizens. He has also built a website called the Social Media Marketplace to connect students to social media networks based on their interests hoping they will learn from, contribute to, and network with informed individuals and online communities. These networks provide a forum for students to build robust digital portfolios that benefit them in the classroom, in college admissions, and—most importantly—for lifelong learning. You can learn more about his philosophy of teaching social media navigation skills in this 2015 article for NAIS.
