Digital literacy for teachers and students

2,379

Published on

Literacy in today’s world goes beyond reading and writing. Digital literacy is as important today as the traditional skills that have enabled people to function and prosper for hundreds of years. Many would argue that the digital skills of today are just as important as the more traditional skills. This session identifys the skills of the new literacy and focus on the positive impact the skills can have on learning, work and life. Information management, ethical and legal issues, and privacy and security guidelines will be explored as part of the larger digital literacy topic.
