Digital Literacy Fundamentals

Digital Literacy Fundamentals
Introduction Today’s youth are often called ‘digital natives’ by adults because of the seemingly effortless way they engage with all things digital. It’s easy to see why: Canadian youth live in an interactive, “on demand” digital culture where they are used to accessing media whenever and wherever they want. Instant-messaging, photo sharing, texting, social networking, video-streaming, and mobile Internet use are all examples where youth have led the charge in new ways of engaging online. But this enthusiasm masks a potential problem: although young people don’t need coaxing to take up Internet technologies and their skills quickly improve relative to their elders, without guidance they remain amateur users of information and communications technology (ICT), which raises concerns about a generation of youth who are not fully digitally literate, yet are deeply immersed in cyberspace. A basic question, then, is what exactly is digital literacy? What is Digital Literacy? Digital Literacy Model

Developing digital literacies 'By digital literacy we mean those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society. For example, the use of digital tools to undertake academic research, writing and critical thinking; digital professionalism; the use of specialist digital tools and data sets; communicating ideas effectively in a range of media; producing, sharing and critically evaluating information; collaborating in virtual networks; using digital technologies to support reflection and PDP; managing digital reputation and showcasing achievements.' Developing Digital Literacies was a two-year Jisc-funded programme (2011-2013) to promote the development of coherent, inclusive approaches to digital capability across institutions of further and higher education.

Without ads, you’d have to pay around £44* per month per household for web services. More relevant ads When you see the icon (the little triangle), you’re hopefully seeing ads that are more interesting to you, rather than ads that are just meant for everyone. How does it all work? To make ads relevant, brands need to know a little bit about what you like – but not who you are. Tune in!
