Digital literacy : The eight elements of digital literacies

Is digital literacy on your radar?  Are you digitally literate?  Can you unpack it for the people you work with, or contribute confidently to discussions about it?

This is a very practical slideshare presentation from Doug Belshaw.  He gives a clear description of what digital literacy is, places it in the context of today’s world, and defines the dimensions of digital literacy in a way that makes it very easy for us to find connections to why it matters.  He also anchors it with three practical activities that we can use to begin extending our own digital literacy.

This presentation would make an excellent conversation starter for staff – for their own professional development, to see how it fits within their day-to-day work, and how we can roll it out as part of our professional practice.

Great stuff.  Thanks Doug.
