Description: The last year has shown just how vital digital literacy skills are in society. Northstar Digital Literacy provides a wide-range of tools and resources to help learners develop their digital literacy skills. This training will focus on how tutors and teachers can guide learners through these resources. In the webinar, participants will learn:

  • The features of Northstar Digital Literacy.
  • How to access and use the Northstar Admin Portal.
  • How to set up and proctor a Northstar assessment (remotely or in person).
  • How to find and use the Northstar curriculum.
  • How to guide learners through the Northstar Online Learning units.
  • Where to find and how to use Northstar's External Resources.

If you are not familiar with Northstar Digital Literacy Assessments, please go to digitalliteracyassessment.org and take the Computer Basics assessment prior to the training.

Please note that you may be asked to participate in discussion groups during the webinar. Please plan to join us from a quiet setting where you can see the PowerPoint slides and use your audio.

CEUs will be emailed to participants after the webinar, typically within 1-2 business days. Please note that if you miss more than 15 minutes of the session, we are unable to issue you CEUs or count your attendance towards a certificate.

If your schedule changes and you are no longer able to attend, please check our training calendar for other dates or video trainings.

This workshop meets the Literacy Minnesota Foundations of Remote Instruction Certificate Program requirements. Learn more about the certificate program.
