If literacy is just ‘reading and writing’ then why has so much ink been spilled over such a simple concept? Is there just one ‘literacy’ to rule them all? Or are there multiple literacies? Is what we do online a ‘literacy’?

I believe there to be 8 essential elements to digital literacies and that definitions of digital literacies should be co-created to have power. In this presentation I point to useful resources (from JISC and elsewhere), ask some questions as conversation starters and provide some practical examples of how you can develop digital literacy skills in yourself and others.

  • I found your assumptions on digital literacies weak because of the lack of theory/theories. Sure, it's interesting with bytes of 8 bits but as they say, 'so what?' Needs more work and proper foundation, even for an EdD. It opens up questions that need answers which you don't provide.
