“In Focus: Digital Reading, Writing and Learning at the Dennos Museum Center” will meet from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, June 19-20, at the museum, 1410 College Dr. Participants should bring an iPad, Galaxy or Kindle Fire for digital writing experiences and to discover useful apps and websites for close and critical reading as well as digital writing. Hicks also will help participants develop lessons that can be supported by the Dennos Museum Center’s collections.
