Sonic Civics, Heard Histories: Towards a ‘Sound’ Theory of Young Children’s Making

Thursday, January 30th
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Description

Interested in the sounds of young children’s civic inquiry?  Come hear how young children ‘made’ a difference through digital technologies and project-based learning in the social studies.  This presentation explores the audible contours of inquiry and social action in an elementary classroom.

Jon M. Wargo is an Assistant Professor in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development at Boston College. As an educational scholar who attends closely to qualitative research methods, Jon engages in ethnographic, design-based, and multimodal methodologies to examine how participatory media mediates contemporary conceptions of civic and social education.

Sponsored by the Mary and Jean  Borg Center for Reading and Literacy, the Harold K. Sage Foundation and the Illinois State University Foundation Fund.
