    Myanmar (Burma) has spent decades under authoritarian rule. It was isolated politically and economically from the rest of the world and home to one of the world’s longest civil wars. In the last few years, Myanmar has begun a transformation from authoritarian to democratic rule, from economic isolation and underdevelopment to an integrated market economy, and from war to peace. Come hear Myanmar expert and Jackson School of International Studies Professor Mary Callahan speak about her experiences living, researching, and working in Myanmar as this process has unfolded. She will also discuss a new USAID/Microsoft-supported information literacy project, housed in the Jackson School and initiated in collaboration with Burmese civil society groups and the Information School’s Technology & Social Change Group (more details on the project coming soon!).

      Presented by Mike Eisenberg, Ph. D. Dean Emeritus & professor UW and co-founder of Big6 skills, this webinar explains Big6 and Super3 basics and introduces the Big6 by the Month series. (60 min. video) Big6 is an information and communication technology (ICT) skills process. Students who learn the six skills have a reliable method to solve problems or answer questions. The youngest students begin with a three stage process called the Super3 from Pre-K to grade 1. By second grade, students transition to the Big6 process to dig deeper into each stage. The Big6 by the Month is a comprehensive ICT curriculum that reaches all students, all grade levels and all subject areas. Big6 becomes part of your existing lessons -- it does not add on extra work. Big6 tagging allows you to identify which skills you already cover, then identify if there are any gaps. The monthly Big6 approach allows you to teach one skill each month. Students learn each skill over the course of the school year, then tie things together with a measure-able culminating activity at the end of the academic calendar.
