  30. 30. 1. How do you differentiate and prioritise the learning of different digital literacies for different publics? (Simon Ensor) ! 2a. How do you start the conversation with folks immersed in 1990s information literacy that does not fully engage with evolving technology? (George Station) ! 2b. How do you start the conversation with folks who see literacy as reading & writing only, and see the rest as skills that aren't really literacies? (George Station) ! 3. I work with language teachers and show that online texts are different from offline texts and understanding online texts asks for new and additional skills and strategies. I think this way of looking at digital literacy, I would say an important part of the total picture, is a bit absent in you total picture, I would say. (Jeroen Clemens)
